Floored (Letters and Correction)
Remember, when it comes to floors, vinyl is suspect; linoleum is safe.
I just finished reading Why Vinyl Stinks (Whole Dog Journal April 2007). While I think the article is wonderful, there is a problem with the reference to vinyl linoleum flooring. The descriptions vinyl and linoleum are frequently and incorrectly interchanged or combined. Linoleum is a natural material, made from linseed oil (flax oil) and wood pulp or cork dust and backed by burlap or canvas. It is considered a green or sustainable building material. If there is anything synthetic added, it is no longer considered linoleum flooring.
