Finishing Touches: Melange Recycled Floor Mat by Koko Company


I am getting restless about finishing up the patio makeover that began a few weeks ago with a Green Room in a Box plan. I’d been searching high and low for a couple of key accessories to finish the look that were both affordable and eco-friendly. The two that had eluded me most successfully? An outdoor rug and sustainable accent pillows. Thanks to some late-night searching, I think I finally may have found a rug that works.

The Melange Recycled Outdoor Floor Mats are made of recycled plastic, which means that they are durable. They are also made by a company I know of and respect, Koko Company, which also makes beautiful eco-friendly pillows. At less than $50, the price is certainly right, as is the size. The only thing that gives me pause is the color. I wanted to purchase the accent pillows before buying a rug to make sure they coordinated. But at this rate, I may be better off buying the rug first.

Does anyone have suggestions on a color that would work in this space? I have a choice of red, green and blue, and I’m leaning toward the red or the blue. We put down red mulch last weekend to replace the black recycled rubber mulch that is there now.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of recycled plastic
  • Made by Koko Company, which is committed to sustainability

Price: $49.50/ea. (aff)
