Sustainability Makes Flooring Eco-Friendly


Staybull Flooring™ is proud to be committed to the health of our environment.  But what makes our product so “green”? Sustainability makes flooring eco-friendly as well as health. These two main factors go into determining how environmentally friendly a product is.

Sustainability can be defined as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs”.  In simpler terms, if we use this product today, will we still be able to use it tomorrow?

Here are a few questions to ask when determining how sustainable a wood flooring product is:

  • Was the wood harvested so as to not degrade natural habitats?
  • Did the manufacturing and transportation of the product cause as little ecological damage as possible?
  • Was the resulting waste recycled or re-used?

The stronger the “yes” to these questions, the more eco-friendly the flooring is. Staybull Flooring­™ can confidently say yes to each of these, so you can rest assured that you will a recycled wood flooring option that meets your needs aesthetically, as well as environmentally. We salvage post-industrial strips of lumber that flooring and lumber companies leave behind. At Staybull Flooring™, we also have direct shipping lines between the mill and our manufacturing facilities (meaning, we don’t ship our flooring overseas to China to get finished, we do it here in the United States.

In the next post, we’ll talk about the health factors that go into eco-friendly flooring.

    Sustainable flooring is produced from sustainable materials (and by a sustainable process) that reduces demands on ecosystems during its life-cycle. This includes harvest, production, use and disposal. It is thought that sustainable flooring creates safer and healthier buildings and guarantees a future for traditional producers of renewable resources that many communities depend on. Several initiatives have led the charge to bring awareness of sustainable flooring as well as and healthy buildings (air quality). Thank you this was such a great post!

    This is a great post because it really is important to use a supplier that is as environmentally friendly as possible – as well as obvious “green” benefits, the flooring often turns out better too because of the quality of the wood! Thanks for posting.
