Green Flooring in Indianapolis That Sustains the Earth (And Looks Good Too!)
Do you want to learn more about some stylish and affordable green flooring products? Ask us about our wool or cork flooring! Cork is a renewable resource. When the bark is taken from the trees, it can be done every nine years during the life cycle of the tree. How is wool the eco-friendliest carpet of all? It’s a rapidly renewable resource and biodegradable with minimal environmental impact. Besides these products, we have several other manufacturers that take pride in using recycled products and green technology to do their part in sustaining the earth. Don’t get it twisted! Not all flooring is alike. While the products themselves are green, the mills that craft them might not be. We do the research to give you real green flooring through and through.
An Indianapolis Green Flooring Company
At Gallery, we devote ourselves to be a green company in both the products we carry and how we function. Listed below is information on every green fiber we sell and what makes it green.
Wool shorn from sheep is completely natural, made entirely of amino acids. This is a sustainable product created from grass, a 100% renewable resource. Wool is a renewable source since sheep can be shaved every 12 months. Wool is also biodegradable and non-allergenic, resisting the growth of bacteria or dust mites.
A tough plant fiber harvested from the mature leaves of the agave sisalana plant, the sisal fiber is taken from the leaves via a process called decortication, a method where the leaves are rolled and crushed until only the fiber is left. Since the weeding is performed by hand, no pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used in sisal production.
A plant fiber from rigid, thick reeds that is smooth to the touch and non-porous. The reeds are harvested, dried and spun into yarns. Seagrass isn’t dyed and comes in its natural color.
Jute is a fiber that is biodegradable and free from pollution. The fiber is taken from the skin surrounding the stem of the plant. The fiber is cut from the stalk in long strands, washed in clear water and hung to dry.
The fiber is taken from the skin of the coconut fruit. A curing process occurs, letting the coir fiber separate from the pith residue. The fiber is cleaned, dried, and twisted into bundles to be used as yarn.
Linoleum flooring is made from wood flour, natural flax, and rosins. They are 100% biodegradable, comfortable, and warm. Healthy to make and use, linoleum stays strong during its usefulness. Linoleum helps create a healthier indoor atmosphere. Its bactericidal properties stop micro-organisms from re-producing themselves since the linseed oil used in linoleum always oxidizes. Also, linoleum is dust-free, making it a good choice for folks with allergies. Cleaning as well as anti-static is effortless. Linoleum has risen over the years to become a popular choice for homes and businesses (breakrooms, cafeterias, coffee rooms).
