Hardwoods are the Green Choice, According to the USDA

hardwood flooring

Hardwood flooring from Dover Rug is now encouraged by the USDA as a green building material.

Many people are trying to “go green” and be more eco-friendly in their home building and remodeling projects. There are plenty of green products out there, and while many are very stylish, they might not fit the look your trying to get. Hardwood floors can look amazing in just about any space, and have the classic style to last B throughout your home’s design changes. Did we mention that they’re also backed by the USDA for being eco-friendly?

“Wood has a vital role to play in meeting the growing demand for green building materials. Forest Service studies show that wood compares favorably to competing materials,” said B Tom Vilsack, the US Agricultural Secretary.

The US Forest Service is joining in with the USDA by looking for opportunities to display the green nature of using wood as a building material on all new structures that are 10,00 sq. ft. or more. They’ll also follow LEED and other green standards.
