EcoDomo Recycled Leather Tiles

EcoDomo Recycled Leather Tiles
EcoDomo's Recycled Leather Tiles are made with shredded, pre-consumer recycled leather scraps that are reconstituted with natural rubber and a binder made from Acacia tree bark to make floor and wall tiles that have all the attributes of leather. These low-pollutant, low-VOC tiles use a waterbased finish and are free of chromium (a toxic metal commonly used in leather tanning). They are maintained much like hardwood flooring, using carnauba wax or beeswax, and acquire a rich patina over time. A low-VOC adhesive is specified for installation. EcoDomo, LLC; Rockville , MD. www.ecodomo.com; phone 301-424-7717

Sloan ECOS Dual-Flush Sensor

Sloan ECOS Dual-Flush Sensor
The Sloan ECOS Dual-Flush Sensor for floor-mounted or wall-hung commercial toilets keeps track of how long a user is in front of it and selects a 1.1- gallon flush if they leave in less than 65 seconds, or if the user lingers longer, a full 1.6-gallon flush. Push buttons on the exposed, battery-powered flushometer also give the user the option to choose the appropriate flush. Each unit comes with etched-metal instruction plates for public education.
