So, which is greener – wool carpet, cork flooring or linoleum? And what are the impacts of renewable energy?


“Dovetail’s reports answer these questions and summarize the environmental data that shows the life cycle impacts of cork are less than those of linoleum and wool carpeting. Our series of reports on bioenergy highlight both the challenges and opportunities of renewable energy,” says Fernholz.
