Spring is upon us, and with that come sunny days, chirping birds and budding flowers. With Earth Day fast approaching and warmer days upon us, now is a great time to think of all of the ways that you take care of your environment, and also brainstorm how you can make a bigger impact within your community.
While cleaning litter from local parks and streets is always a great way to protect your environment, there are other ways to do so as well, and as Flooring America members, we are proud to be a part of a larger group who has taken the initiative to think outside of the box when it comes to giving back.
At Flooring Americas we believe in doing the right thing for our community, and that means taking green initiatives that can benefit both our environment and our business. In the store, we offer sustainable products, such as cork and bamboo floors, recycled concrete countertops, and also tiles made of partially recycled content. Some of our carpets are even made from recycled water bottles, proving that recycled products do go back into your community.
Being environmentally conscious is not only the right thing to do, but it is also a great way of life and running a business. We are committed to “greening” our company in order to better our environment with our own actions through our relationships with our community, neighbors, suppliers and our employers. Our Green Select product line is made up of products that are recyclable, contain a minimum of recycled material, and/or can be made from a natural, sustainable, and renewable resource.
During this beautiful and happy time of the year, take a moment to find ways to be green, whether it is at your place of work or at home. Regardless of where or how you give back to your community, do one thing each day that will make your community a healthier and happier place!
