The striking feature of vinyl flooring is its ability to mimic the natural appearance of wood and tiles, without their maintenance challenges and at a fraction of the cost.

Is vinyl an environmental friendly material?

Embrace sustainability with vinyl, an environmentally responsible flooring material. Boasting a composition of 57% common salt – a plentiful, renewable resource – vinyl sets the standard for eco-friendly flooring solutions. The remaining 43% is derived from non-replenishable resources like crude oil, significantly less than many traditional flooring materials.

Vinyl's green credentials extend beyond its components. It stands out in the flooring industry for requiring fewer natural resources in its production, consuming less energy, and emitting lower levels of environmental pollutants.

But that's not all – vinyl's durability is unmatched, offering years of service. And when it's time for a change, vinyl's lifecycle doesn't end in a landfill. This remarkable material is recyclable, ensuring that your stylish choice today doesn't cost the planet tomorrow. Choose vinyl and step into a sustainable future.
