Coconut flooring comes from senile coconut palms that have come to the end of their coconut bearing lives. Normally a senile coconut palm is between 50 and 70 years old. It is necessary to cut down senile coconut palms and replace them with new coconut palms. The new coconut palm grows at an amazingly quick rate. A newly planted coconut palm reaches maturity in 5 to 6 years. This is about the same time as bamboo takes to reach maturity. Because of this incredibly fast growth rate coconut palms can be considered as a renewable resource. And because coconut palms are renewable resources, coconut flooring can be regarded as sustainable flooring.
With the great forests of the world rapidly vanishing it is not considered environmentally friendly anymore to buy hardwood flooring. A hardwood tree takes between 50 and 120 years to reach maturity. Even with sustainable forestry the time period necessary to replace a cut down hardwood tree limits the amount of lumber that can be responsibly removed from a forest. It is therefore of vital importance to the health of the planet to look to alternatives to hardwood products. And this is where the coconut palm is of vital importance. Coconut flooring makes an ideal substitute to hardwood flooring. It has a grain and a light color like ash. Coconut flooring is also anti allergenic like hardwood flooring and ideal for people suffering from allergies or asthma.
Finally, coconut flooring is competitively priced and comes from countries with hot climates in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific region. Buying coconut flooring helps the economies of developing countries without negatively impacting on the these countries’ environments. Buying coconut flooring will add beauty to your home, protect you against allergic rhinitis, protect the environment and help developing countries.
