Carpets For Kids® helps keep our planet green by reducing landfill waste. We send our unused production scraps and damaged goods from our Georgia facility to a nearby recycling center. Since June 2007, we have recycled roughly 1,312,000 pounds or 656 tons worth of material.
All our Carpets are Recyclable!
How can you stop landfill waste? It’s easy; all of our carpets are Recyclable! Just roll up your old CFK carpet, locate your nearest recycling center on our website, and ship. For more details, visit our recycling page.
All our products can either be recycled back into carpet fiber or be recycled and used in making other plastic materials like car parts.
Aditional ways we are going green:
- We Use renewable power from PGE: Green Source. 100% of our monthly usage in our corporate office is offset with renewable resources. Our power comes from approximately 50% new wind, 40% geothermal and 10% biomass (wood waste) power.
- Our catalogs use 100% Soy ink. Soy-based ink is more environmentally friendly. It also improves the life span of the printers, makes it easier to recycle paper, and is more economic in the long run.
- All our catalogs are printed on FSC certified paper.
- Carpets for Kids® not only recycles their carpet waste, but they encourage employees to recycle their office waste:
