At FLOR, we are utilizing materials that have sequestered carbon from the atmosphere and using it to create our first ever carbon negative area rugs.
While all of our rugs are carbon neutral across their lifecycle, our new collection draws more carbon from the air than it releases into the atmosphere from the extraction of the raw materials through manufacturing, also known as cradle-to-gate. The carbon negative materials in our new rug backings, in combination with ECONYL® yarn and our tufting process, result in a carbon negative carpet tile. The finished product brings together durability, beautiful design, and a negative carbon footprint that ultimately benefits both you and the planet.
FLOR partners with Aquafil, who recycles used nylon into beautiful yarns for our area rugs. Aquafil’s regenerated ECONYL® nylon is the same as brand-new nylon but doesn’t utilize new resources.
This backing is made of post-consumer carpet tiles, bio-based elements, and pre-consumer recycled materials that are net carbon negative.
This non-vinyl backing is made with biopolymers, plus bio based and recycled fillers that are net carbon negative.
Our most sustainable backing, this has the same material makeup as Interface’s CQuestBio with a higher concentration of carbon negative materials.
After a life-changing epiphany, the CEO of a global public company embarks on a high-stakes quest to eliminate all negative environmental impacts by 2020. To succeed, they must overcome deep skepticism, abandon the status quo, and ignite a new industrial revolution. Beyond Zero offers an inspirational roadmap for how businesses can reverse climate change. Join us in our quest to go beyond ‘doing less harm’ and towards a future where we create opportunities and products that have a positive environmental impact. When we stop seeing carbon as the enemy and start using it as a resource, we can create something meaningful.Watch the Film
…Flor tiles makes a great statement piece into my new black and white master bath entry way. Big plus! older tiles can be recycled back to company they take care of return shipping. Buying new tiles can be addicting:)— Monika
I've been using Flor tiles for years! I decided to re-do my home office and so I once again went on the hunt for the right look for the space. I took advantage of a free sample promo as well as the design your own tools. Plus, I can ship back the tiles from the rug this one has replaced for recycling! Thanks Flor for being so durable, easy to clean, and conscious about our environment!— Patricia

These FLOR carpet tiles look great in my dining room! Very attractive. I support FLOR because of their commitment to sustainability and quality of their products.— Kelly
Love this [Doe Re Mi] pattern! I wish it lined up better to make a cohesive rug look. It looks great and seems very durable. Not as soft or plush as 'regular carpet. But I'll trade that for the functionality and recycled status.— Olivia
