What it is: Lumber from sustainable sources; natural beauty and durability without the guilt. Choices in environmentally friendly flooring range from certified lumber harvested under Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) guidelines to recycled and engineered wood.

What makes it green: FSC certification, which tracks lumber to sustainably harvested sources.

Recycling: Repurposed wood comes from such sources as old barns, wine tanks, or trestles.

Technology: Engineered flooring maximizes supplies by bonding veneers on a plywood base.

Cost: $10 to $19 per square foot.
