doormats-natural-recycledIf you’re looking for the perfect doormat for your home, there are undoubtedly a lot of options available. The good news is – many of these options are also easy on our planet. I found a great selection of cool doormats that are made with eco-friendly materials, including many that are fully biodegradable. Coir doormats, for example, are made with natural coconut fibers. When a 100% coir doormat wears out, you can simply toss it into your compost bin.

And if you like to welcome your guests with a little fun – I found some laser engraved doormats by a company called Damn Good Doormats that puts hilarious slogans on their unique selection of funny welcome mats. I also found cool doormats made with recycled and upcycled materials, like reclaimed lobster ropes and flip flops. With so many cool, eco-friendly doormats available, there’s no reason to buy any other kind!


Cool Doormats in Coir and Natural Fibers

Natural Coco Fiber Doormats
Doormats made from natural fibers are always a good bet. Once they’re worn out, they will eventually biodegrade and be less destructive to the environment. In some cases, if the doormat is made with 100% natural fibers, like coir doormats (which are made from coconut husks), they can be cut up and used as mulch for gardening, or, as mentioned above – tossed into your compost bin. Many of the welcome mats I present here are made of all natural coir. It’s an ideal eco-friendly material for doormats because you don’t feel badly about disposing of them once they wear out.
