Each month, Dovetail will spotlight one of our eco-friendly flooring collections. Our January spotlight is Marmoleum.
What makes Marmoleum eco-friendly?
Marmoleum a natural floor covering that’s over 150 years old. Associated with sustainability, durability, high quality and truly innovative design, it’s created from 97% natural raw materials, including flax, linseed, rosin and limestone.
Forbo Flooring Systems, the designers of Marmoleum, boast that it is 72% rapidly renewable and created from 43% recycled content. Not only is it a naturally CO2 neutral floor covering solution, but it contains no phalates, plasticisers or mineral oil.
Marmoleum is also biodegradable, while any offcuts and production waste is recycled back into further Marmoleum products. This ensures optimal raw material utilisation. Burning Marmoleum delivers a higher calorific value and thermal energy, which outweighs the energy used in its production. This ensures a full life-cycle circle!
Their flooring is incredibly versatile in application, colour and design. It can easily be fixed to your floor with low solvent adhesive, in keeping with its sustainable, eco-friendly attributes.
