Bamboo is an excellent alternative to hardwood or other durable surface products. Because grasses grow more quickly than trees, these materials are often considered more renewable than wood-based floors. However, for true eco-friendly floors, be sure to look for natural grass materials that are manufactured without the use of added formaldehyde or harmful chemical finishes.
