Does anyone know of cork countertops and flooring that are truly green?
I'll be remodeling my bathroom soon and am looking for suggestions/manufacturers of cork materials for flooring and countertops.
Showercork by Sustainable Flooring, made from post-industrial wine corks that are cut into 1/4" pieces. It comes in sheets and is either prefinished with two coats of a water-based urethane or unfinished and can be stained. It's great for wet applications and the grout adds to the durability.
Haven't seen any countertops with cork yet, although I would think the penny rounds would work.
