LINOLEUM Armstron  LINOLEUM Marmoleum  LINOLEUM Marmorette  LINOLEUM

Linoleum is made from all natural materials. As long as the sun shines and the rain falls, Linoleum can be produced. The natural raw materials used to create Linoleum are available in abundance. They include : linseed oil, rosin, wood flour, cork flour, limestone, pigments and jute. These raw materials are harvested or extracted with relatively little energy consumption. The main energy resource for the process is the sun. The plants and trees that supply linoleum’s raw materials also contribute to the production of oxygen and the subsequent reduction of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, thus reducing the amount xof greenhouse gasses present in the atmosphere. Linoleum floors generally last from 25 to 40 years, after which they can be easily recycled.

MOHAWK SMARTSTRAND WITH DUPONT SORONA CARPETMOHAWK SMARTSTRAND WITH DUPONT SORONA CARPET

SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona renewably sourced polymer is made, in part, with naturally occurring sugars from readily available and renewable crops. Sorona’s key fiber ingredient is Bio-PDO, produced from corn sugar. By utilizing this central ingredient, 37% of Sorona can be made from renewable resources instead of the more limited petrochemical-based ingredients that are used in most other carpets. And production of Sorona, when compared to production of an equal amount of nylon 6, uses 30% less energy and reduced CO2 emissions 63%. So every 7 yards of SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona used in a home saves enough energy and resources to equal one gallon of gasoline – a total savings of up to 10 million gallons – all without sacrificing performance. Given the rising demand for eco-friendly products, SmartStrand is the ideal carpet for today’s consumers.

WOOLS OF NEW ZEALAND CARPETWOOLS OF NEW ZEALAND CARPET

  • Making a commitment to environmentalism means more than recycling carpet. It involves finding the most effective and least wasteful methods of making products from the start. Wools of New Zealand represent the world’s largest exporter of wool for carpets. They take their position of environmental responsibility seriously. To fill their commitments, they work aggressively to improve indoor air quality, reduce landfill waste, minimize water usage and conserve energy. The wool shorn from sheep is completely natural. It is composed entirely of amino acids, the building blocks of life. Wool is sustainable, renewable and biodegradable. It is produced from a totally renewable resource – grass – and is thus environmentally sound. Sheep can be shorn every nine to twelve months. In soil, wool readily biodegrades to produce nitrogen, sulfur, carbon dioxide and water, which are all plant nutrients. No internationally banned pesticides are used for animal welfare and protection, making the New Zealand sheep industry one the world’s greenest animal production systems.
