Green Living With STAINMASTER

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in News From Us

Did you know that according to the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), more than five billion pounds of post-consumer carpet went into landfills in 2008, and that the rate of carpet recycling is only 5% in the US. STAINMASTER is doing its part to divert carpets from ending up in landfills and extending the carpets by recycling. The STAINMASTER® Carpet Recycling Program, a division of INVISTA’s Carpet Reclamation Program, is encouraging retailers and consumers to increase the ate of carpet recycling.

Many of the carpets recycled in the INVISTA’s Carpet Reclamation Program are recycled back into new carpets or carpet products. Carpets with nylon polymers (such as Type 6,6) can be recycled into other products, like automotive parts, with less refining. This approach saves energy and conserves resources.

The INVISTA Carpet Reclamation Program, the first nationwide carpet reclamation program has a uniquely simple approach that allows flooring retailers to take back all types of used carpet – regardless of make, fiber or manufacturer – so no carpet will ever go to a landfill. Since 2001, the program has collected more than 85 million pounds of carpet, resulting in more than 425,000 cubic yards of conserved landfill space.Click here to read more.

We are so thrilled to carry environmentally conscious products at Ambassador Floor.

Shaw’s Post-Consumer Carpet Recycling

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in News From Us

We are proud to carry environmental friendly products like the Shaw’s Anso Nylon Carpeting, these are product that are both environmental save and improve the indoor air quality of our homes.

Labels found on Shaw’s carpet styles made from Anso® Nylon 6 feature information regarding the postconsumer recycled content, as well as the recyclability, of these products. Recycling of carpets made from Anso Nylon 6, as well as other carpets made from the same type of nylon, is made possible by Evergreen Nylon Recycling, Shaw’s Nylon 6 recycling operation in Augusta, Georgia. The Evergreen facility converts post-consumer Nylon 6 carpet back to its original starting material, caprolactam—the building block for Nylon 6 fiber. The caprolactam from Evergreen is mixed with new caprolactam during the manufacturing process, and new Anso nylon fiber is made. Although Anso Nylon 6 carpets contain nylon produced with Evergreen postconsumer caprolactam, the actual percent of recycled content in the product will vary from sample to sample.

Evergreen Nylon Recycling, Shaw’s nylon recycling operation in Augusta, Georgia, employs patented technology that converts post-consumer nylon carpet and recycles it back to its original material – the building block for nylon fiber. As a result of this technology, carpets of Nylon 6 are capable of being recycled into new carpet repeatedly without the loss of any aesthetic or performance properties.

Shaw has also partnered with several recycling companies to establish a collection network to bring more post-consumer carpeting to the Evergreen recycling centers.  Shaw hosts a number of recycling centers across the county, and Shaw is continuing to add more centers and grow their operations. The recycled content that Shaw is able to put into their products from this process represents a nationwide environmental benefit.

Green Label Plus Carpets

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in News From Us

When purchasing carpet for your home or office, it is vital that you understand how your carpet will affect the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) of your space.  In 1992, the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) created the Green Label testing program to test carpets for their emission of VOCs.  The CRI has recently expanded their testing program to include Green Label Plus, which tests carpets and adhesives.  Both programs aim towards getting consumers to purchase low emitting carpets, which will enhance the Indoor Air Quality.

For more information on the comparison of CRI’s testing standards against other leading carpet testing standards click here.
