Welcome Home: Eco-Friendly Doormats by India Rose


At the moment, the walkway to our front door is one of the least loved parts of our home. Sure, I could blame the property manager for not power washing the dust and cobwebs. But really, we haven’t paid a whole lot of attention to it either. Right now, we have a sorry excuse of a pleather doormat that we’ve had for years that does nothing to remove dust/grime/anything from the bottom of our shoes. And you know me… If we’re going to buy a new one, it has to be pretty, right? These coir doormats by India Rose via Burke Decor are a great start.

I love the color and patterns, though the orange honeycomb mat would probably be the best fit for our current decor. Honestly though, any of these would be a great choice and an easy way to spruce up the entry. We can’t paint the door or change the style of our apartment numbers, so the changes will have be small. Between a doormat and a few flowers or plants, I think we can make it happen.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of coir fibers, which are made from discarded coconut shells

Price: $32/ea.

    These are pretty. But the manufacturing process to turn coconut shells into these mats may not be so ecofriendly. Buy items that are handmade from upcycled materials. By doing so you are supporting artisans and spent resources remain vital – that is green….
