Our Sustainability Efforts

A Responsible Choice

FLOR believes in a closed-loop product life cycle, which means we carefully consider our environmental-footprint in every step along the way: design, manufacturing, use, delivery and reclaiming old FLOR.

  • Design: FLOR is designed with the end in mind. Our 19.7-inch squares are beautiful, functional and recyclable.
  • Manufacturing: Our manufacturing processes are as energy-efficient as possible. We use renewable energy sources and technologies which help reduce our emissions and waste.
  • Use: FLOR's modular, square format means that it is a flexible, practical and scalable design system.
  • Delivery: FLOR is efficiently packaged in easy-to-manage boxes delivered direct to your door.
  • Reclaiming: FLOR is designed to be taken apart so face fibers and backing materials can be recycled into new product through our Return & Recycle Program.

Return & Recycle Program

We are committed to making sure no FLOR ends up in a landfill. Through our Return & Recycle Program, we take your old FLOR tiles and turn them into new product. Call us at 1.866.281.3567 to learn how you can participate in our program and help make a difference.

Renewable & Recycled Content

FLOR is made with renewable and recycled content* and is recyclable. Our ultimate goal is to exclusively use renewable and recycled raw materials. We're not completely there yet but have made great progress. For specifications on the recycled content of a particular FLOR style, please view the specifications for that style on FLOR.com or call FLOR Customer Care at 1.866.281.3567 for details. Most FLOR styles meet or exceed the Carpet and Rug Institute's Green Label Plus standards for low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Low VOCs are important because of their harmful impact on indoor air quality.

FLOR Catalog

The consideration used in designing FLOR is applied to the way we market our products as well. We're proud to be one of only a handful of companies in the U.S. to print our FLOR catalog on the highest percentage of recycled content paper available.

Working Together

FLOR is a division of Interface, Inc., a family of companies committed to caring for the environment in all that we do. We're part of Mission Zero, a promise to eliminate any negative impact the Interface family of companies may have on the planet by the year 2020.

Carpet for a Cause

We created the Carpet for a Cause™ Program, to re-purpose products on our displays by finding worthy places, within our communities, for them to live on. The product that's been walked on has a good place to go, too – right back to our manufacturing facilities in Georgia where it is recycled into new product.
