Environmentally Friendly Carpet by Bloomsburg Carpet

If you are considering buying carpet, you'll want options that not only look beautiful and last a lifetime, but also keep the environmental impact to a minimum. Consider a sustainable, eco-friendly carpet.  Did you know that the number one cause of indoor air pollution is your carpet, and that an eco-friendly carpet can make a difference in your lifestyle and safety as well?  

First, you will need to know how to identify true, sustainable carpeting in order to make the best decision what type of carpet to purchase.  Luckily, we have three tips you need here.  

1-  Look for certifications:  Green Label Plus ensures the highest standara of indoor air quality for you and your loved ones.  If you are in the market for a sustainable carpet, be sure to check that the carpet manufacturer is certified by a reputable environmental review institution like Green label Plus.  This is the best way to know that you will be buying true, sustainable carpet. 

2-  Check for recycled material content:  If your carpet contains materials that can be reused or have been manufactured with reused materials, that is a great sign. Bloomsburg's nylon Carpet, for example, are manufactured with 25-30% recycled materials which reduces waste.  Each nylon carpet that is replaced with Bloomsburg nylon is then recycled for future use.  

3-  Check for safe backing, color and adhesive:  Your carpet is more than just fibers.  Make sure you know what the carpet backing is made from, if the dyes are environmentally friendly, and natural.  Certain backings can greatly add to carpet pollution.  Look for one like the jute yarn backing found in Bloomsburg Carpet Wool carpets.  This is a biodegradable plant fiber.  

If every element of your carpet is mindfully manufactured using natural fibers or recycled materials, you've found a winning sustainable carpet.
