Linoleum is one of the most sustainable flooring solutions on the market, prized for its comfort and durability. It is an inherently resilient material that has proven to be very resistant and adapted for use in schools, hospitals, public institutions and companies. A material made from natural and renewable ingredients such as linseed oil, pine rosin, wood, cork flour and jute.

One of the advantages of linoleum is that it can be recycled after use, transforming it into raw material for new floors. The recovery and recycling proposal is one of the values ​​of this material, and it is precisely what “ELVI” seeks to teach through its design and operation.

In conclusion, “ELVI” is an educational game that encourages awareness and respect for urban animals and the environment through the reuse of materials such as linoleum. This sustainable and resistant material has hygienic properties and can be recycled after use, making it an ideal choice for public and private spaces.
