Flooring company Bolon has taken the next environmentally conscious step forward with Bolon Green.
November 18th, 2016
Since originally founding in 1949, Bolon has again and again shown itself to be an environmentally forward thinking design innovator. From an early history or turning textile waste into rag rugs, the group has continuously looked for more sustainable working and manufacturing processes up to this day. Bolon Green is the next step in that story
With environmentally conscious design becoming more and more important in the face of an ever-changing world, Bolon Green serves as a holistic approach to environmental responsibilities. The ultimate aim with Bolon Green is to offer a product that is completely adapted to the built and natural environments, and is the result of a carbon climate neutral design, with design responsibilities extending beyond the actual manufacturing process to ultimately leave no environmental footprint.
The seven areas covered by a future without environmental footprints are examples of product and design innovation at their best:
Bolon Green sees all Bolon products made 100% phthalate free, ensuring surfaces safe for contact with food and children. This new process also allows Bolon to employ lower temperatures during the production process of the surfaces, contributing to overall reduced energy consumption.
All Bolon collections are designed with the world’s most demanding environmental certifications in mind. Covering products and processes, Bolon hold many internationally recognised environmental qualifications – allowing Bolon to be featured in the highest level Green Star rated projects across Australia. Bolon is available in Australia through The Andrews Group.
