The Green Vanguard: L is for Linoleum
Green designers love to incorporate the latest technologies in their projects, but they shouldn’t lose sight of tried-and-true solutions. Linoleum is a good example. Developed in the mid-19th century, true linoleum (not vinyl flooring, with which it is often confused) is made primarily of natural materials, including linseed oil, pine resins, limestone, and wood or cork flour. Now in its hundredth year of producing linoleum, Armstrong has released a new, all-natural line in 126 colors, making the durable, LEED-eligible flooring a good candidate for just about any interior.
