EcoFusion Says: Portland’s Quality of Life Matches Australian Philosophy

At EcoFusion, we think Portland residents should feel much honored that Melbourne, Australia’s number 1 cafe, Proud Mary, chose this city as its first US location.

There are many reasons stated in the article, such as the “warm, genuine, and heartfelt” service. There’s another reason, though, and it’s one that resonates with EcoFusion: Study after study shows that Australia is ahead of the times when it comes to healthy living.  In 2015, the United Nations ranked Australia as the second-best country in the world for quality of life.

That matches Portland, also known for its quality of life, and its “innovative and creative” residents.

Why do we say the EcoFusion line of products are so eco-friendly?

First, all of our bamboo products qualify for credits under the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System set up by the U.S. Green Building Council. The U.S. Green Building Council is the ultimate authority when it comes to the environment. 

Second, all of our bamboo products are made from 100% Moso bamboo, which is a rapidly renewable resource. 

Third, it’s worth noting that All EcoFusion bamboo products are produced without  urea, formaldehyde and harmful VOC’s.

Bamboo is a grass which is then engineered by slicing, shredding, creating strips, and pressing it into boards. It can be produced in a variety of wood looks, from maple and walnut to the more exotic Tigerwood. 

One of the biggest players in the eco-friendly product line is strand woven bamboo. While other kinds of bamboo flooring may be created by several species, strand woven bamboo is just created from one, usually Moso, which is widely considered the best. Rather than being cut into strips, strand woven is made from bamboo fibers, softened and then pulled apart. It’s known for its strength, almost 2.5 times stronger than any other bamboo products!

It’s easy to keep clean, too, because all you have to do is mop with water and a mild detergent.

EcoFusion is a line of flooring that blends renewable and recyclable products from the earth, and combines them into innovative flooring solutions for the home. We take products such as renewable bamboo and recycled hardwood scraps from furniture factories and turn them into beautiful flooring fashion.

The EcoFusion line of products were created to help increase the awareness and advantages of strand woven, compressed wood and bamboo products.
