When choosing sustainable products and materials for your home, quality and longevity should not be sacrificed. By definition, the word “sustainable” refers to something that is maintained at a higher level and this principle should apply to the flooring you choose.
Having become more aware of the impact we have on the ecosystem, people around the world are becoming more environmentally conscious. We are now striving to lead greener lives that leave minimal carbon footprints. Of the numerous steps taken and the changes implemented in a bid to save the environment, on of the lesser talked about topics is the use of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood. FSC is an international non-profit organization promoting responsible managing of the world’s forests. Sustainable wood should carry the seal of FSC, which insures the forests are regrown, biodiversity is preserved, an air and water quality are protected. That non-profit stamp of approval indicates forests operations met 57 criteria, ranging from protecting local wildlife to minimizing the use of toxic elements. FSC wood does not come from clear-cutting practices, which have a disastrous effect on the climate.
We at Naples Flooring Company, are dedicated to ensuring our product and installation materials are environmentally friendly, sustainable and 100% natural. Legno Bastone raw wood is sourced from commissioned forestry, all European French Grand White Oak. Our products hold FSC certification, they are qualified for LEED projects and Cradle-to-Cradle. The planks are UV cured with all natural hard-wax oils, and the wood flooring adhesive and moisture barrier used during installation have zero VOC and Formaldehyde emissions.
As a homeowner, you probably looked into sustainable flooring options because you wanted to reduce your carbon footprint. You hope you can find an option that is both eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Naples Flooring Company is striving to provide both. Please, be sure to visit one of our Legno Bastone galleries:
