What Do Pumpkins and Bamboo Flooring Have in Common?

October began this weekend and our minds turned to autumn, turning leaves, fall cleaning, Halloween, and pumpkins.
 
Here’s a guide from Oregon Live about some of the best pumpkin patches around the Portland area: http://www.oregonlive.com
 
Many love the taste and versatility of pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, but not as many know how good it is for your health. In fact, pumpkin is classified as a superfood, which means it’s packed with nutrients, especially the antioxidant beta carotene, which converts Vitamin A, well-documented for glowing skin, sharp vision, and boosting the immune system. Vitamin C aids heart health, lowers blood pressure, and slows the aging process. Of course there are other nutrients as well, but this is just a taste (pun intended!)
Bamboo is also good for your health, because it is gorgeous, strong, water-resistant, and easy to care for. That will make you happy, and happy people tend to be more productive and healthier. 

​Many think bamboo is a hardwood, but it actually comes from the bamboo plant, a highly sustainable and renewable resource. While it looks and acts like hardwood flooring, no trees were cut down in the process.
 
EcoFusion also manufactures Strandwoven Bamboo, an even tougher version that makes it a great choice especially if you have kids, pets, or just a lot of foot traffic.
 
Here’s why you should select EcoFusion:

  • EcoFusion Strandwoven Bamboo is created 100 percent from the Moso Bamboo, a fast-growing and highly sustainable plant. In fact, it grows so fast and becomes so tall so quickly, it can be a little intimidating; you won’t have a Moso bamboo plant on your desk!
  • We use materials that are low-emitting, such as phenolic adhesives that contain no added urea-formaldehyde or harmful VOCs, preserving indoor air quality and protecting your family’s health (health protection, much like that pumpkin!)

 
EcoFusion flooring is available throughout the United States, as well as some parts of Canada.  For a dealer in Portland, click here.
