Choosing sustainable products can be a real minefield. As well as weighing up man-made materials against natural ones, there's the damage done by intensive farming and transport pollution to consider. It's important to look at the whole product lifecycle, from the sourcing of the raw material, through the day-to-day cleaning and maintenance, then to the disposal of the flooring in the end.We help you by providing the information you need so that you can choose the right flooring for you.
