Ecstatic over "Ecomat"
I needed a new rug in the mudroom and I found a really neat "ecomat". Of course the name caught my attention, but it looks wicked cool because it looks like river rocks, and is a multi-level surface that traps dirt. The durable base is made recycled rubber that is reclaimed from scrap tires! The mission of the company, Apache Mills is a "cleaner environment through the use of recycled materials in their products". I love the look of the rug, the function of the rug, and I especially LOVE that is made using reclaimed scrap tires. The more companies that figure out uses for recyclable materials the better. I smile every time I wipe my feet on it.
