Treading Lightly: 10 Eco-Friendly Rugs

Today’s roundup features ten simply beautiful eco-friendly rugs.  We all try to do our part to leave the world a better place than it was when we found it, and sustainable design is one of the more fun and creative ways in which we can further our endeavors.  From natural fibers like jute and hemp to bamboo and seagrass, these area rugs and runners aren’t just good for the environment; they’re good for our lungs, too, without the abundance of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that tend to compromise our health when we bring synthetic substances into our homes and endure the off-gassing effect that happens as the substances age.  So, with these ten beauties ranging from neutral and natural to bold and bright, we’re not just doing the earth a favor; we’re doing one for ourselves too.  Sounds like a win-win situation to us.
