- Paints and finishes release low level toxic emissions into the air for years after application. The source of these toxins is a variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which, until recently, were essential to the performance of the paint. Most paint manufacturers now produce one or more non-VOC variety of paint. These new paints are durable, cost-effective and less harmful to human. Oh! And don't forget environment, it reduces landfill, groundwater and ozone depleting contaminants.
- Bamboo has a great deal of tensile strength and can be used in walls and flooring. It is an ideal building material because it can be used behind the scenes — underneath another type of flooring, for example — and as wall screens and mats. Bamboo is very sustainable since it grows quickly. While trees such as pine and cedar can be reforested, growing them can take years. Bamboo can be reforested much more promptly and grows throughout the world.
- Plant-Based Polyurethane Rigid Foam, Had you hear about it before? Rigid foam is often used as insulation material in building. It’s made from kelp, hemp and bamboo.
