EcoFusion flooring can also [su_tooltip style=”blue” title=”LEED Credits” content=”Every EcoFusion bamboo product qualifies for LEED credits.  All EcoFusion bamboo products, including their strand woven bamboo flooring, is made from Moso bamboo. This type of bamboo is considered a rapidly renewable resource under the LEED standards. EcoFusion flooring products are manufactured so that they emit very low levels of materials. Most other types of flooring cannot say this. EcoFusion manufactures flooring adhesives that do NOT contain VOCs or added urea-formaldehyde. While EcoFusion strand-woven bamboo flooring is one of their top sellers, their EcoFusion strand wood Eucalyptus flooring is also very popular. This flooring also qualifies for LEED credits, and exceeds emissions standards just like their strand woven bamboo flooring. In fact, all EcoFusion Flooring products exceed indoor air quality standards (CARB2012 and E1 thresholds).”][su_button] earn credits[/su_button][/su_tooltip]

Black Mountain and Oregon Shepherd sheep wool insulation, and Applegate cotton insulation may earn credits as well, being rapidly renewable, with lower embodied energy, and better for indoor air quality.
