The World Floor Coverings Association recommends these materials for green flooring:

Just because a material falls on this list doesn’t automatically mean it’s “green.” This is especially true of hardwood flooring, which, if not harvested sustainably, can have serious environmental impacts.

When choosing green flooring, work with a design associate at Floor Coverings International of Wheaton & Naperville to make sure your green choice is really good for the environment. We will verify that your product choice is certified. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) all offer guidance on the environmental responsibility of each product and we will guide you through that maze of initials.
