A large selection of carpet styles are manufactured from recycled materials, such as recycled plastic bottles, while others are designed to be easier to recycle, so they don’t end up in a landfill. Low-VOC carpet, which helps improve air quality in the home, accounts for most of our inventory.
Eco-Friendly Carpet and Flooring
Having a healthier home is more than a trend. Today more and more homeowners are becoming interested in eco-friendly carpet, flooring, and window treatments that are beautiful for their homes and the environment. Whether you’re looking for carpet made from recycled plastic bottles or sustainable flooring options, Empire Today® offers “green,” non-toxic products that will help you feel confident you’re making a choice that is good for your home and for the planet.
Several qualities can categorize a product as eco-friendly, such as how the product is made, what the product is made from, and how it is disposed. And, you can be even “greener” by selecting a product that can help reduce your home’s energy consumption, like honeycomb blinds and shades – a choice that is good for the environment as well as your pocketbook.
We understand that being environmentally responsible also means having safer air to breath in your home, which is why we have carpet and flooring products with low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions that can help promote better indoor air quality. Your flooring professional can help you choose the right carpet, flooring and window treatments to make your home earth-friendly.
