We are fully engaged in responsible and meaningful green efforts, with recyclable, sustainable and recycled flooring products in our portfolio. We also recycle used/remnant carpet and pad in partnership with our local communities. We carry that green focus into our everyday business practices, with recycling and energy-efficiency programs in each of our branch operations, where everyone is encouraged to repurpose, reuse and recycle — actively participating in working and living green.
We offer green products from many of our manufacturers, including products made from sustainable fibers and from recycled materials, including plastic and glass bottles, as well as post-consumer carpet and fibers. We also offer many products that are themselves recyclable.
We have been actively recycling used carpet, carpet remnants and pad for many years, with a significant impact on landfills in each of our markets. We are continually seeking new and more effective options for recycling not only flooring waste, but paper, bottles and other by-products of our office and warehouse operations around the country. We have CB Green programs in place in our headquarters and each of our branch offices and warehouses to keep the focus on responsible recycling efforts on a daily basis.
Sustainability is the capacity to endure. It is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions. At CriterionBrock, we are committed to the communities where we live and work. As a result, we strive to encourage continuous improvement in all areas of environmental stewardship, including the responsible use of flooring materials, installation processes and the overall operation of each of our facilities, with the ultimate goal of reducing the impact of our activities on the environment and our associates.
