Eco-friendly Wood Flooring from Ambient Bamboo
Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
These days, sustainability is something we're all concerned about. Whether it's the cars we drive or the food we eat, people everywhere are looking for ways to make the littlest negative impact on the environment. If you're remodeling your home, make Ambient Wood Flooring your choice for eco-friendly kitchen flooring! We're proud to be an environmental leader offering truly green flooring products to forward-thinking customers.
Bamboo is quickly becoming a popular choice for eco friendly kitchen flooring - and for good reason! Bamboo grows quickly without harmful pesticides or fertilizers, and it doesn't require excessive amounts of fresh water. Certain species of bamboo can grow at a rate of three to four feet per day, meaning a bamboo forest can mature in as little as seven years. Compare that with a traditional hardwood forest, which can take over a century to replenish itself. But that's not all! Bamboo groves release more oxygen into the environment than other trees, and they can help prevent soil erosion, improving growing conditions for other plants. Bamboo can also grow in diverse environmental conditions. Best of all, because sustainable bamboo flooring is so durable (our strand woven bamboo is three times as strong as traditional hardwoods) you'll get years of use out of your bamboo flooring. When you buy eco bamboo flooring from Ambient Bamboo Floors, you're not just doing what's right for the environment - you're investing in a quality product that will give you a lifetime of beauty!

Our Green Credentials
No one takes eco-friendly flooring more seriously than Ambient Bamboo Floors. Since 2005, respect for the environment and respect for our natural resources have been the guiding principles of our business. We're a leader in sustainable flooring products that look great, last long and are good for the environment. Our bamboo is harvested from Forestry Stewardship Council certified well-managed forests, and we're members of the US Green Building Council. And did you now, by installing eco bamboo flooring, you qualify for LEED credits? At the shipping level, we also incorporate environmentally friendly practices in our business. We pack our products in FDA-approved organic cornstarch peanuts that decompose completely in water. We strive to use boxes and stretch wrap made of a percentage of post-industrial and recycled material. And all of our corrugated packing material is made of 100% recycled content. From the moment our eco friendly flooring is harvested to the moment it leaves our warehouse, we're incorporating green practices into every aspect of our business!
