Green... Some good options in no particular order: bamboo, cork, concrete, recycled glass, recycled tile, recycled plastic.
I'm in a similar boat; but I'm planning on going with a $2-$5/square foot eco-friendly route (that's just materials, no labor). I'm planning on using lightweight concrete as a base that's 2 inches thick, with a .25-inch polished solid concrete top coating. My only issue is finding a good source of the lightweight concrete -- it's expensive as #### unless you buy by the truck load, though I've run into some good recipes online for DIY'ers.
