“Green” Cork

|

Floors, walls, ceilings – wherever you choose to install these distinctive Globus cork tiles, you can rest easy that you’re making an ecologically-responsible choice. (Plus, they’re super stylish!) 

With tile sizes ranging from 4-inch by 4-inch to 18-inch by 36-inch, and colors running the gamut from Alabaster and Whitewashed, to the dark, bold hues of Scarlet, Royal Blue and Ebony, you can let your imagination run wild and create a multitude of patterns. The colors shown to the right are just a small sampling of what’s available.

All pigments, varnishes and adhesives used are water-based, solvent-free and have no volatile organic compounds.

Plus, cork is a harvested resource. Bark is harvested from cork oak trees approximately every nine years. It in no way harms the trees. This cork flooring is actually made from waste produced during the manufacturing of corks for wine bottles.

Tiles range in price from  $5.90 to $8.55 per square foot, depending on their size and color. Center for Green Building, 3309 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport, (203) 382-0774. www.centerforgreenbuilding.com
