ZEA MARU – a brilliant eco-friendly solution for floors! This is the first PLA (Poly Lactic Acid)-based natural floor ever with a combination of different natural resources like limestone, citric acid, etc. ZEA MARU helps to save trees by replacing wooden floors with its solid and wood-look design mainly made of more rapidly renewable corn-based PLA, and is also is more energy-efficient in terms of under-floor heating. This innovative floor is manufactured 100% formaldehyde-free unlike many other products in natural material, emits no toxic gas during its product life, and therefore offers a healthier and safer residential environment for its habitants.
