Resilient flooring produced from recycled rubber is one of the most ecologically friendly flooring options available. Until recently the millions of rubber tires discarded every year have been burned, tossed into landfills as waste, or stockpiled creating environmental hazards and massive mosquito breeding sites. This course focuses on selecting and using flooring produced from this overlooked resource, with an emphasis on how recycled rubber flooring helps clean up the environment, recycles a valuable material, and results in resilient, durable, versatile flooring.
