Bring Back Real Linoleum
Vinyl flooring, which is commonly referred to as linoleum, has given the real deal a bad name. A great eco choice for flooring, linoleum is made from natural materials including linseed oil, resins, recycled wood flour, cork dust, limestone, and mineral pigments, which are mounted on jute backing. It’s naturally antibacterial and biodegradable, and now comes in a variety of cool patterns, though this blue-and-white checkerboard would look gorgeous in any number of modern kitchens.
