Carpet and Pad
It is estimated that over 5 billion pounds of carpet is sent to the landfill annually which gets buried deep into the earth, sitting there for years before it decomposes. Like anything else you purchase you can do your part to reduce the amount of raw materials taken from our earth. Carpet can be reused into a number of items such as composite lumber, tile backer board and roofing shingles. Many of these items last far longer than those they replace and avoid cutting down additional trees or extracting additional raw materials. With the increase of disposal fees for carpet, Global Sustainability Solutions can help coordinate the removal of both carpet and pad ensuring you have a good stewardship program in place.
