Eco Friendly Rugs
A lot of rugs are made with plastics derived from petroleum and other toxic materials such as formaldehyde which can pollute indoor air, so choosing rugs made from eco and recycled materials is important for health. Since rugs are constantly being walked on, they are an easy target for contaminations. Natural fibers reduce allergens and are resilient. Eco friendly rugs can be made out of organic cotton or wool, bamboo, cork, and jute (fibers used for making twine). Rugs can even help insulate to help keep utility costs down.
