New natural carpet that is allergy-friendly
This new type of carpet is produced from natural jute, a hemp product
(Canadian interiors, 1995). This Hemp is grown without use of any pesticides and is completely biodegradable. Thanks to this it is environmentally friendly and by using hemp it provides jobs for people working on hemp farms. This Erutan project is aimed to create other biodegradable carpets, thus saving tons of carpets that are thrown out. Researchers from Erutan project are aiming to create carpet that after usage can be simply shredded and used as a fertilizer or other organic material. This is very good news for environment and also for allergic patience.
Visit erutan.eu for more information on the project.
