As the new decade began, one of the world’s most respected naturalists, Sir David Attenborough, in his efforts to tackle climate change and protect the planet from a man-made disaster issued a stark warning – “The moment of crisis has come”.
Meanwhile, Australia has been burning for weeks, with bush-fires raging out of control, and scientists warning that this could permanently alter the country’s landscape! Subsequent heavy rainfall and thunderstorms may have brought a modicum of relief, extinguishing the blazes in some parts of the country, but that has put New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory on flood alert.
Nobody who’s seen the news can fail to admit that the time has come for us to make radical changes to help protect our planet and environment before it’s too late. We need to change the ways in which we live, travel, work and play to save ourselves and our planet from a bleak future.
This means that it’s time to act and start making changes in our own lives and not just expect government bodies to address these problems, which they’ve clearly failed to. This is an issue that many climate scientists have been warning us for years, but the warnings have gone unheeded by many. It’s a problem that is faced by everybody and will affect all of us so we all need to take responsibility and play a part in protecting our planet before it’s too late.
Here at Green Decore, we’ve taken note of the impending disaster which is why we decided to ensure that all of our products are sustainable and eco-friendly. As a leading producer of home décor products, we’re committed to providing our customers with products that don’t damage our planet.
Our Green Decore range of in/outdoor rugs are made from recycled single-use plastics, keeping them out of our oceans and landfill sites. Each rug is tightly woven from straws made from premium quality recycled plastic.
They’re incredibly lightweight which means that they can easily be rolled up and taken out in the car to provide a dry and comfortable spot to sit on, whether at the beach, the park, a or picnic spot, making them an increasingly popular choice with campers, caravan owners and just about anybody who enjoys outdoor adventures.
The Petrichor Collection is a range of rugs made from plastic bottles recycled into fine polyester fibers (PET fibers), which is then spun into a yarn that is handwoven to create fabulous rugs which look and feel just like the popular woolen kilims.
All of these rugs are fully reversible, offering two different looks for the price of one. They’re practical and easy to clean – either with a damp cloth or by hosing them down in the bathtub or the garden. What’s more, because they’re water-resistant, they dry in no time at all and can be back in place almost immediately. They are the perfect floor covering for a busy, modern home.
Both the Green Decore Collection and the Petrichor Collection are durable, resistant to moisture and mildew and won’t fade in the sun, making them ideal both for indoors and outdoors. Both collections are available in a wide range of patterns, colors and sizes, which means there will be something that will suit your home style and fit the space you have available.
Our Terrestre Collection of Natural Jute rugs are all hand-woven from 100% natural jute fibers. They are fully reversible and available as round or rectangular rugs in a range of colors, designs and sizes, so there’s something that will suit every room. Whilst there are several rugs in the natural jute color that will blend seamlessly with the rest of your home, we recognize that some people prefer brighter colors. This is why we’ve made sure that some of our jute rugs feature fabulous bright colors that will add the Wow Factor to any home.
With the Climate Crisis upon us, now is the time to make the vital changes necessary to protect our environment! Take your first step into a cleaner, greener future with Green Decore!

Here in the UK we're a nation of animal lovers. Our furry friends are part of our family, they're good company, great for a cuddle, we just can't resist those little furry faces. However, there's always a price to pay for pet ownership, it might be a sofa scratched by the cat, or your favourite slipper chewed by the dog, but there's one thing common with all pets and that is dirty footprints!
It's impossible to clean your pet's feet every time they enter the house, so whether you have cats or dogs, you'll be familiar with this problem. The perfect solution is to place Green Decore rugs in your entrance ways and in any areas of your home dedicated to your pets.
Our rugs are just perfect for pets in so many ways. They are incredibly easy to clean, so when they do get covered in little footprints, you can simply wipe them with a cloth to remove the marks. Unlike ordinary rugs, pet hairs won't cling to them either. Despite being made from recycled plastic, the rugs have a lovely soft texture, perfect for pets to snooze on. Put them in a sunny spot and they'll get lovely and warm. They're UV protected too, so you won't have to worry about the colours fading.
Cats are notorious for scratching carpet, but you'll find cats just aren't very interested in sharpening their claws on these rugs. They're tough too, so they can stand up to some wear and tear.
If your pet is a messy eater, one of our rugs would be great to place under the food and water bowls, and they're also good to put under a litter tray, to catch any stray litter and any little accidents! The texture of the rug actually helps to remove litter from paws as the cats walk over it, saving it from being spread around your home!
As well as being very practical for pets, these green rugs also look stunning, so you won't have to compromise on your décor style. There are plenty of colours and styles to choose from, with some new designs on the way soon.

We know you love our rugs, you love the designs, the vibrant colours and the quality, but we think the most important aspect of our products is that they are so versatile. We've been asking some of our customers just how they use their rugs, and they've come up with some uses even we have never thought of! Here is a selection of comments we've collected, perhaps it will inspire you with new ways to use your rug!
“We have our rug in our kitchen, I was sick of replacing ordinary rugs when they just got too dirty, but with a slippery wood floor, we have no option but to have a rug for safety. With a busy household it's impossible to prevent spills, and as an avid, but messy cook, this was the perfect solution. Spills wipe off easily, and every once in a while I'll take it outside and give it a good blast with the hosepipe, it's as good as new then. It's saved me money as it will last a very long time, and it looks good too.”
“ I bought two rugs, one is just for the kids and gets used all the time, it gets spread over the dining table when they are painting, with water based paints we can wipe it clean. They also play on it in the garden, if the grass is damp they don't get wet. The other rug we keep in the car. We're often out and about and we always take a picnic. With three kids eating out is expensive, so picnicking is fun and cheap! The large sized rug is big enough for us all to sit on comfortably and it's not heavy so it's easy to carry to a picnic site.”
“Our rug is in the conservatory. The Moroccan design of the Nirvana rug suits the style of the room, but we primarily bought it as it doesn't fade in the sun. Our last rug started out looking great, but the conservatory gets a lot of sun and it was soon discoloured where the sun hit it most.”
“ My rug was a present, at first I thought it was a weird gift but it's proved to be very useful. I'm a keen fisherman you see, and it's great for laying out all my gear by the riverside without it getting wet from the dew in the morning. “
