Done with this mat? Just bury it in the garden!

When you’re done with this lovely entrance mat by MacKenzie-Childs, no need to worry about how to recycle it. Just throw it in the compost bin, or bury it in the garden. After all, it’s biodegradable, according to the manufacturer.

Made in India of coir fiber, (which is extracted from the husk of coconuts,) and rubber, (both renewable resources,) it does not contain any PVC.

This particular style is the “Flower Market” Entrance Mat, but there are a host of colorful designs from which to choose – all recommended for protected outdoor areas. The mat is two feet by three feet, and 15 mm thick.

$82. Middlebury Consignment, 1365 Whittemore Road, Middlebury. (203) 528-0130.
