What is a good alternative product to Minwax?

Asked by Melanie Lewis

We are refinishing hardwood floors and want something green, with zero or low VOCs. We are planning to use Bona Traffic for the seal and finish, but what about the stain? Our contractor recommended Minwax, but how green is that product? Are there better, healthier alternatives?
