We're trying to be as green as possible in planning our renovations. It's amazing to learn how something you thought was entirely environmentally friendly can be harmful to people due to toxic glues or other materials used in the construction. Like bamboo flooring for example. You have to specifically seek out non toxic bamboo flooring. I didn't know that but I'm learning a lot more as we go along.
One thing I'm really digging is concrete counter tops. They are non-toxic, very green, very durable and look great. And the bonus is that they aren't over the top expensive. We went to Greenworks Building Supply on W. 8th last weekend and saw some interesting samples of countertops and other materials, like PaperStone and IceStone.
