When you buy EarthWerks® products, you know you are being “green conscious” because all of our luxury vinyl tiles and planks are recyclable and manufactured in ISO 14001/9001 energy – efficient facilities. G4L® by EarthWerks® is your assurance that all of our products include many of the following attributes:
• Contains recycled content
• Has the ability to be repurposed and used again
• Can be reclaimed and recycled into other products
Customers also understand the importance of environmental initiatives, which is why many look to reclaim old floors and replace them with our green – friendly EarthWerks® products. Together we can all strive to reduce the amount of waste in the landfills. This gives you the confidence when buying EarthWerks® products that you are doing your part to help the earth stay green.
Removing old, existing floorcoverings and cove base then separating the material suitable for recycling is a great first step in being Green4Life®. It leads to putting resources back to work and contributes to reducing the amount of waste in our landfills. Understanding more about the environment, reclaiming old floors and replacing them with our green-friendly EarthWerks® products saves the forest for the trees.
Those tiles and planks that are not suitable for reuse can often be recycled right back into the manufacturing process. Our goal remains to make the most possible use of recycled materials while maintaining consistency in quality and cost of our products.
In commercial environments, typically 50% of the floor is never walked on due to the placement of furniture fixtures or other items. Why not reclaim usable vinyl tiles and planks to repurpose them for use in local schools, Habitat for Humanity® or any of the many charities you wish to promote in your community. What is not reusable can be processed and recycled back into decorative flooring, whenever possible.
