Rug-cycle: Green Trend

Rug-cycle: Green Trend

Since its founding in 2002, members of the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) have diverted 2.3 billion pounds of waste carpet from U.S. landfills. The word is spreading that manufacturers must do everything possible to use sustainable, recycled, and recyclable content in their products. Here are a few that convey the message of responsible manufacturing with style:
