What are Sustainable Flooring Systems?
Sustainable ("green" or "eco-friendly") floors utilize sustainable and/or recycled materials. Floors can also be considered eco-friendly based on the disposal of the materials upon replacement. Poured-in-place, seamless floors are part of the building’s structure, unlike many other products.
