These recycled leather tiles by EcoDomo have a luxurious look and feel. They are made from a minimum of 65% of post-industrial waste and are available in a range of colors and textures. EcoDomo has just announced at Greenbuild that they have an option for the tiles to be re-positionable. This follows the method that many carpet manufactures have pioneered. If one tile is damaged it can be easily replaced without the need for a full floor tear out.

Not only does it have one of the lowest flush ratings for a dual-flush model — only 0.9 gallons per flush — but it also features a taller, chair-height bowl for extra comfort.

    It’s phenomenal to see the words of W. Clement Stone “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” in action. Hooray for green initiative!
