Pebble tile floors. Smooth stones underfoot gently massage tired toes and lend a spalike quality to your bath. While most conventional pebble tiles are derived from mining stone, the folks at Modwalls have created a 100 percent recycled glass version of pebble tiles, called ModRocks, that lend the spa vibe without harming the environment.
Ceramic tile floors. Ann Sacks' Savoy series (one of its Eco-Thinking lines), is made from 21 percent post-industrial recycled content, including ceramic waste material from discarded clay and tableware pieces. The refined Savoy series is affordable and broad, plying you with all the field tiles and mosaics a bath could want.
Cork floors. Cork touts a lot of green cred: It's a rapidly renewable and carefully protected resource. Every nine years, producers in Portugal and Spain strip the thin bark of cork trees into long, wide slabs, using care not to damage the tree. Wine corks are stamped out first, and the scraps are then ground and pressed to make flooring and bulletin boards, so that every bit harvested is used. Make your cork water resistant with a low- or no-VOC sealer.
Modwalls has boosted cork's ecofriendly reputation with its charming CorkDotz Mosaic Penny Round, created from the cork stopper industry's by-product.
