Utilizing Clay and Cork

Clay and cork are a pair of options for eco-friendly and stylish room makeovers.

Clay is a naturally green product that is a healthier alternative to gypsum, cement, acrylic, and lime plaster. Clay comes from non-toxic oxides and ochre mineral pigments, reducing the amount of toxins that can be released into the air from other materials.

Cork is a sustainable product harvested from just the bark of cork trees, leaving the tree itself undamaged. About a third of the trunk is stripped every nine years for its cork bark, and the tree then regenerates new bark. It’s a great alternative to carpet or wall paneling, and is much softer than standard hardwoods.
