For The Consumer:
provide expertise along with
concise information to facilitate the environmentally conscious
consumer, as well as the interior design community, in selecting floorings
that are most beneficial to our environment and to their needs. Much of
the information available in the marketplace is misleading thereby making
some flooring products or programs appear to be more environmentally
responsible than they actually are. For example, if a specific carpet is
advertised as made with recycled fiber content, what does that mean?
There are recycled fibers from post industrial material (carpet left over
on the factory floor) and post consumer recycled content (old carpet being
thrown away). So which of these materials is more beneficial? Post
consumer recycled content is preferable because it is more likely to be
diverted from our landfills.
