Types of Eco-Friendly Flooring
Laminate floors, from our key suppliers Armstrong and Shaw Floors, utilize efficient manufacturing processes to produce more usable flooring out of less wood. In addition, laminate flooring uses less newly harvested wood than traditional hardwood floors.
Shaw Floors, one of our key suppliers, maintains a nationwide network of carpet collection locations to recycle flooring materials and manufacture their signature nylon 6 fiber carpets. From these locations, the carpet goes to Shaw’s Evergreen Carpet Recycling Facility where the nylon can be recycled over and over again.
Since 2006, Shaw has reclaimed an average of 100 million pounds of carpet each year.
Bamboo and Cork
We offer other excellent green flooring options like bamboo and cork. These products come from readily renewable plant sources and are beautiful and stylish additions to any home or office.
