Although vinyl flooring (#3, PVC) looks and feels much like linoleum, it’s inherently toxic and laden with VOC’s, phthalates and sometimes lead. Linoleum, on the other hand, is an affordable, eco-friendly choice that has been around since the 1800′s. It’s durable, biodegradable and made with natural materials such as solidified linseed oil, wood flour, cork dust and canvas backing. It’s a truly #Non-toxic flooring option. #SafeLiving #Green #Eco-friendly
