Natural Floor Coverings Protect the Environment

Posted by Natural Area Rugs on Apr 20th 2006

With Earth Day coming up on Saturday, April 22—what better way to help protect the environment year-long than to make your home eco-friendly.

One of the most affordable ways to do this is to replace your synthetic carpet with natural area rugs or natural carpets.  You may be surprised at how many viruses, toxins, bacteria and dustmites synthetic carpets harbor.  It takes years for toxins to dissipate! Some of the chemicals used in the manufacture of synthetic carpets and rugs include ethylbenzene, methacrylate and tetrachloroethylene- just to name a few.  Some of the symptoms associated with chemicals used in these carpets include headaches, dizziness, high blood pressure and shortness of breath.

Here at Natural Area Rugs, we specialize in natural flooring materials that would add a pleasant and stylish change to your décor.  Our wool rugs are perfect for the environment and most importantly to your health.  This is because they purify indoor air—which makes it easier for you to breathe.

Have any of you added the eco-friendly wool rug to your home?  We would love to hear about your experiences with this durable yet all-natural and stylish floor covering.
