Concrete Tiles:

Concrete tiles are made from all-natural resources & pigments, and so they are extremely eco-friendly. They are used as both eco-friendly bathroom tiles and eco-friendly kitchen tiles on both wall and floor tiles. Because of all-natural materials, concrete tiles are much durable and easy to maintain compared to any other tiles.

And the natural pigment also does not fade over time. These eco-friendly tiles in India are made using a hydraulic press, and they are never baked like other tiles making the production process much more energy-efficient.

Reclaimed Wood

The concept of using reclaimed wood is not new, but it has seen a surge in the past decade as people are getting more and more environmentally conscious. For all the sustainability enthusiasts out there who love the look of wooden floors but does not feel like using the new natural wooden planks, the reclaimed wood is the best alternative.

We couldn't put enough weight on how important it is to use this reclaimed wood. They will not only give your home a beautifully rustic look, but it is also good for the environment.

Engineered Hardwood:

Engineered hardwood uses about 1/3 of the wood used in making natural wooden planks. Usually, only the top layer is wood, and the inner part is plywood. And we know the less the trees are cut down to create wooden planks, the better it is for the environment.

It also creates a lot less waste during the manufacturing process. Whereas, a lot of wood is wasted in manufacturing trying to sand into the planks. If you are looking for eco-friendly flooring for the bathroom or kitchen or living room, or bedroom, we would urge you to at least consider this option.
