Step into the future of sustainable construction with HempWood® Organic Flooring

Imagine floors crafted from nature’s own champion – hemp. Not flimsy fabric, mind you, but full-length fibers transformed into rock-solid planks. We source this magic locally, within 100 miles of farmers who grow it with love and care. Then, we bind those stalks with plant-based glue, compress them tight, and bake them into HempWood® Blocks – the foundation for your sustainable dream floor.

But the magic doesn’t stop there. We slice those blocks into paper-thin veneers, perfect for layering onto ethically sourced plywood. Imagine – a floor that’s both tough and gentle, built with earth-conscious values at every step. And trust us, every step counts. We hand-check each board, sand it to perfection, and finish it with the utmost care. This isn’t just flooring, it’s a work of art Mother Nature and human ingenuity birthed together.

Now, let’s talk options. You can go site-finished, embrace the natural beauty of untreated HempWood®, or dive into our dazzling Custom Color Collection. Whatever your vision, HempWood® has a plank to match.

And it’s not just floors, friend. HempWood® is the wood-whisperer, replacing traditional lumber in everything from construction materials to furniture. It grows 100 times faster than oak, boasts 20% more strength, and leaves a carbon footprint so tiny it practically tiptoes through the planet. Plus, it’s naturally mold-resistant, outperforms most insulation, and even holds its own against water.

Sure, some might compare the cost to traditional hardwood, but remember – you’re not just buying a floor, you’re investing in the future. HempWood® grows like wildfire, meaning prices keep tumbling. And let’s not forget the fire-resistant properties that keep your mind at ease.

This isn’t just flooring, it’s a statement. A declaration that you care about the planet, you appreciate quality, and you have impeccable taste. HempWood® isn’t just wood, it’s a revolution waiting to be walked on. So, ditch the ordinary and embrace the extraordinary.

Bamboo Flooring: A Sustainable and Stylish Choice

Let’s talk about bamboo and eucalyptus – the eco-powerhouses revolutionizing floors!

Imagine a floor that grows like magic, replenishing itself in just 3-5 years. That’s bamboo – a fast-growing grass, not wood, that’s tougher than you think. We’re talking about the hardness of Yankee oak, standing strong against scratches from even the clumsiest pups. And get this: it keeps growing even after harvest, making it sustainable superhero.

But wait, there’s more! Bamboo comes in three flavors: solid wood, strand woven (twice as strong as oak, mind you!), and engineered for ultimate stability. So, ditch the myth of soft bamboo – this stuff is a warrior in disguise.

Now, eucalyptus joins the party, boasting similar eco-friendly magic. These fast-growing trees guzzle carbon dioxide like nobody’s business, making your home a breath of fresh air (literally). Plus, their unique manufacturing process weaves them into super-strong planks, keeping your wallet happy.

And let’s talk about happy feet! Bamboo and eucalyptus offer a kaleidoscope of colors, from light and airy whites to deep, rich browns. Unique patterns dance across the planks, adding personality to any room. Think sleek modern kitchens, cozy bedrooms, or even bustling family rooms – these floors handle it all, all while staying stunningly affordable at just $3-$5 per square foot.

So, why settle for boring old wood when you can have a floor that’s good for you, good for the planet, and good-looking to boot? Bamboo and eucalyptus are the eco-conscious power couple that’ll transform your home into a haven of style and sustainability. They’re tough enough for high-traffic zones, gentle enough for bare feet, and beautiful enough to stop your guests in their tracks.

Investing in bamboo and eucalyptus isn’t just about floors – it’s about making a statement. It’s saying you care about the planet, you appreciate quality, and you have impeccable taste. So, what are you waiting for? Ditch the ordinary and embrace the extraordinary. Let bamboo and eucalyptus weave their magic into your home today!

Step Into The World Of Eucalyptus Flooring

Where stunning style meets rock-solid strength, all wrapped in eco-friendly goodness. Imagine a floor that grows like magic, reaching its full height faster than most options, then graces your home with a touch of the tropics, knottiness and all. And get this – it’s tougher than a Brazilian Cherry, with a Janka score that puts most hardwoods to shame!

Eucalyptus isn’t just a pretty face, it’s a beast in disguise. With a Janka score north of 4000, it’s one of nature’s toughest floor warriors, shrugging off scratches and dents like a champion. And at $5-$10 per square foot, depending on how wide you like your planks, it’s budget-friendly too.

Check out Wiscanders’ strand-woven eucalyptus floors. They take individual eucalyptus strands, fuse them under intense pressure, and voila! You’ve got a floor that’s several times harder than regular wood. So toss out that myth about eucalyptus being soft – this stuff is the Hulk of hardwoods!

But eucalyptus isn’t just about brawn, it’s about brains too. Grown in sustainably managed forests, this fast-growing wonder replenishes itself quickly, keeping nature in balance. And here’s the cherry on top: responsible harvesting practices ensure your stunning new floor doesn’t cost the Earth.

Now, let’s talk versatility. Eucalyptus comes in a kaleidoscope of colors, from light and airy whites to rich, dark browns. Unique patterns dance across the planks, ready to add personality to any room. And the best part? You don’t have to break the bank to bring this beauty home. From your bustling kitchen to your peaceful bedroom, eucalyptus fits the bill at just $3-$5 per square foot.

Think about it: a floor that’s triple the strength of traditional wood, perfect for high-traffic zones and ready to handle life’s little (and big) messes. Plus, it’s kinder to the planet and your wallet than its hardwood counterparts. Now that’s a win-win-win!

Lower production costs translate to savings for you, making eucalyptus a smart financial choice. Plus, its eco-conscious nature makes you feel good about your investment. So why settle for the ordinary when you can have extraordinary? Ditch the boring and embrace the bold with eucalyptus flooring.

The Magic Of Cork Flooring

Imagine a floor that’s kind to your wallet, kind to the planet, and feels like walking on a cloud… that’s cork! Not your average wood, it’s harvested from the bark of majestic cork oak trees, not harming a hair on their heads. This bark regrows every 9 years, making cork the sustainability superhero of the flooring world.

But hold on, cork’s got more tricks up its sleeve than eco-friendliness. Its natural springiness bounces back from most scuffs and footprints, keeping your floor looking pristine. Imagine saying goodbye to the stress of every dropped plate or playful pup!

Now, there are some things to keep in mind. Cork loves soaking up spills, so kitchens and bathrooms are out. And while it’s tough, sharp objects and heavy furniture can leave marks, so be a bit strategic with your placement.

But that’s just a tiny footnote in the story of cork’s brilliance! For $4-$10 per square foot, you’ll get a floor that’s not just comfortable, it’s a sound ninja! CorkTech by Wiscanders, for example, has hidden layers that muffle noise like nobody’s business. Whether it’s your own footsteps or rambunctious kids, cork cuts the noise by up to 53% compared to laminate!

And cork’s not just for floors! Think underlayment for existing floors, stylish coasters for your prized furniture, even decorative tiles for walls and furniture. It’s like a green genie granting all your home decor wishes.

Here at WidgetCo, we’re passionate about sustainable living, and cork perfectly reflects our values. We only source from responsibly managed forests, ensuring healthy trees and happy forests. Hand-harvesting every 9 years? That’s nature’s magic at its finest.

So, are you ready to transform your space into a haven of comfort, beauty, and quiet elegance? Cork flooring is calling your name! It’s a chance to walk on sunshine, whisper conversations instead of shout them, and do your part for the planet, all in one stylish step.

Sisal: Stairway to Heaven... Without the Carpeting Woes

Think lush, textured fibers woven into a warrior’s shield – that’s sisal. It’s not just any stair covering, it’s a fortress against wear and tear, lasting years longer than its delicate rivals. No more replacing frayed carpets on your high-traffic heroes – sisal laughs in the face of footsteps, parties, and even the occasional dropped ice cream cone (though maybe clean that up, yeah?).

But hold on, you say. Natural fibers and stairs? Isn’t that a recipe for soggy disaster? Not with sisal! Sure, it absorbs, but unlike its jute and seagrass cousins who turn into limp dishrags, sisal bounces back. Just a quick dry and it’s good as new, ready to handle whatever life throws your way (except maybe a full-blown water fight – let’s keep it reasonable).

And the best part? Sisal’s a budget hero. It might cost a smidge more to install, but its lifespan blows wool carpets out of the water. Think decades of stunning, durable beauty, all for a price that won’t leave your wallet weeping.

But sisal isn’t just a stair-loving warrior, it’s a style chameleon too. Its natural good looks complement any décor, from beachy boho to sleek modern. And unlike jute, which sheds like a nervous chihuahua, sisal keeps its fibers firmly in place, making it a dream to maintain. Just a quick vacuum and it’s back to looking fab.
