Durable Eco-friendly Rug Made from Recycled Plastic - Fab Habitat Indoor/Outdoor, 4' x 6'

  • $53.00


This rug, made from 100% recycled plastic, is durable and perfect for a patio, mud room, kids play room, or some other high traffic area.  Fab Habitat has an amazing line of beautiful, eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable options for rugs, small furniture, pillows made from recycled materials.
We have been using this particular rug, which is listed as either a indoor or outdoor rug, as a patio rug out back of our house.  It has sat outside in an area that is prone to mold but it has held up well, picking up little to no mold.  It also seems easy very washable, such as with a hose or hard bristle brush (we haven't needed to wash it yet).  I think it could also work as a rug for an area where you expect high traffic or need something very durable.

The material feels plastic-y, so I wouldn't use this in my living room (though other reviewers seemed to use it inside).  However, Fab Habitat has other eco-friendly rugs made from recycled cotton that are likely much softer.  They also have rugs made from recycled water bottles, which I know from experience can be transformed into very soft material.  I look forward to trying more of their products in the near future.
Fab Habitat's product does well on our sustainability checklist:
  • The rug is made from 100% recycled plastic and helps to divert plastic waste from the landfill, reduces energy usage, and cuts down on climate-changing gases.
  • Although there is limited info on the site about how to dispose of the rugs, it seems very likely that you can throw these in the recycling can when done with them (though they are very durable and will likely last a long time).
  • Fab Habitat mentions some charitable interests and seems to be focused on environmental sustainability, but they are not a B Corporation nor do they have much information about their environmental or social impact.
