Want to Help the Planet? Choose an Eco-Friendly Flooring Manufacturer, Barnesville, Ohio

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, building materials have generated at least 170 million tons of waste—nearly twice as much as that produced by general municipal trash. Fortunately, if you want to build or renovate your home, there are many ways you can lower your impact on the planet. One possible strategy is to choose a flooring manufacturer that employs eco-conscious solutions in every aspect of their business. Here are just a few ways producers are perfecting homes while protecting the planet.

How Some Flooring Manufacturers Are Protecting the Planet

Sustainable Sourcing

flooringWhen researching flooring options, consider manufacturers that source materials in an eco-friendly manner. For example, if you want hardwood flooring, look for a producer that legally sources trees from farms that have been deemed sustainable by the U.S. Forest Stewardship Council. You might even find that some manufacturers help plant trees to replace those used to make flooring. Wood isn’t the only material that can be sourced in an eco-conscious manner, however. For example, tile, laminate, and vinyl flooring products can be created from recycled materials—such as plastic bottles and glass.

Eco-Conscious Manufacturing

Once materials have been sustainably sourced, there are many ways producers can minimize their manufacturing carbon footprint. Some possible ways to reduce the environmental impact of production include using solar power or installing more efficient factory machinery.

Waste Reduction Efforts

In addition to producing eco-friendly products from green materials, flooring companies can also adopt strategies to help reduce the waste they produce. By switching from printed to digital invoicing, for instance, manufacturers can save sheets of paper by the millions. In production facilities, excess carpet padding foam might be repurposed into couch cushioning material. Some companies might even offer to collect old flooring materials from customers for recycling and donation.
