SQUARE ROOTS

OUR PHILOSOPHY ON RESPONSIBILITY

Our belief in possibility impacts everything we do. It means we're always improving our business and manufacturing with environmental consciousness for you, your family and our planet. It means the FLOR you create will be a rug you can look up to.

And we put that philosophy to work. We operate a closed-loop product life cycle, with responsibility at the core of every decision.

DESIGN: FLOR is designed for you and for the environment. This is smarter carpet for living on, caring for and recycling over again.

MANUFACTURING: We produce each square as efficiently as possible. We use renewable energy sources and technology that reduces waste and emissions.

USE: Our modular format means that you can create a flexible, practicable, scalable design system that works best for you and your space.

DELIVERY: What's the best box to receive on your doorstep? A pizza box. How can that be even better? If the pizza box is full of design possibilities. FLOR boxes are easy to manage and easy to reuse in imaginative ways.

RENEWABLE & RECYCLED: Our ultimate goal is to exclusively use renewable and recycled raw materials. Today, most styles meet or exceed the Carpet and Rug Institute's Green Label Plus standards for low VOCs, important for healthy indoor air quality. We're where we want to be yet but we can continue to make great progress with your help.

RECLAIMED: When you donate your FLOR back to our Return & Recycle Program, each square is disassembled so face fibers and backing materials can be reused each in their optimal ways. Smart to start, smart to finish and start again. To keep your FLOR out of a landfill, call 1.866.281.3567.

CARPET WITH A CONSCIENCE

Nearly all of our styles are made 100% from recycled nylon. So when we learned that discarded fishing nets damage our ecosystem for centuries as they degrade, we realized we had an opportunity.

Through research, design and technology collaborations, we discovered that the fishing nets – made of nylon – could be recycled to create beautiful new carpet.

So for years, FLOR and Interface have partnered with Aquafil to repurpose nylon from many sources, including these recovered fishing nets.

NET-WORKS AT WORK FOR YOU

The Net-Works program brings this idea to life in a fishing community in the Philippines. It provides a platform for recycling discarded nets, keeping the nets out of the marine ecosystem, giving them new life as FLOR squares and giving back to the the Danajon Bank economy by buying the nets from the fishermen.

The result? Every step you take becomes one towards a better planet.

MISSION ZERO 2020

As a division of Interface, Inc., FLOR is part of a family of companies committed to caring for the environment in all we do. We're dedicated to Mission Zero, a promise to eliminate any negative environmental impact by 2020.
