About Our Site

SustainableFloors was formed to offer a unique reference point on flooring your home sustainably.

With the increasing awareness of the impact that we have on the planet just by living normal lives, there is a thirst for knowledge on how to live in a sustainable way and reduce that impact.

Choosing sustainable products can be a real minefield. As well as weighing up man-made materials against natural ones there's also 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.

So if you're torn by the conflict of a local product against one that's completely natural but flown halfway round the globe, then this is the site to come to for advice. We help you by providing the information you need so that you can choose the right flooring for you, then provide you with the questions to ask suppliers to make sure you're making the right choice.

As SustainableFloors isn't backed by any manufactures, distributors or retailers you can be sure that the advice you're given is completely impartial. And if you can't find something you are after, you can go to 'Ask Our Experts' and get access to our experts for free.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

SustainableFloors was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding SustainableFloors and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
