Carbon Negative Icon

Go Carbon Negative

Rugs with this symbol are carbon negative, meaning they draw more carbon from the atmosphere than is released to make them. The carbon negative materials in our CQuest™BioX backing, in combination with ECONYL® yarn, and our tufting processes, result in carbon negative rugs.

Rug Backings That Give Back

All of our rug backings are, at minimum, carbon neutral. But now, we offer three new backings that are designed to move beyond carbon neutral and toward a carbon negative future.
Econyl® Logo

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.

Like the yarns used in our rugs, our journey to sustainability is woven into who we are. Between responsibly sourced materials, manufacturing powered by renewable energy, and carbon negative rug backing technology, FLOR’s environmentally friendly rugs look beautiful in your home while being safe for the earth.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with our parent company, Interface, Inc., to make a positive impact on the environment with four sustainability initiatives: Live Zero, A Natural Fit, Create with Carbon, and Act for the Future.

Live Zero

We made a goal to reach zero negative impact on the Earth by 2020—and we declared success one year early in 2019. At FLOR, we aim to do business in ways that give back whatever is taken from the Earth. We’ve worked hard to make sure all of our carpet tiles are manufactured with renewable energy, and recyclable too. Through our Return & Recycle program, we keep millions of pounds of carpet out of landfills each year.

A Natural Fit Icon

A Natural Fit

Nature is our muse at FLOR, and not just for our Earth-inspired rugs. Nature has the power to self-regulate the climate, and we want to do the same. That’s why we’re exploring ways to run our factories more like ecosystems. Our pilot program, Factory as a Forest, aims to go beyond doing less harm, and start actively benefiting our planet.

Create with Carbon Icon

Create with Carbon

We are actively using and exploring raw materials that use plant-derived carbon or sequester carbon to make our products. Guided by materials science, we’ve added new thinking and innovative materials to develop backings with a negative carbon footprint.

Act for the Future Icon

Act for the Future

As we think about tomorrow, today, we know business cannot be conducted as usual. We’re constantly reinventing our business models to make a positive impact. By using Aquafil’s ECONYL® regenerated nylon, made from nearly all recycled waste, like fishing nets or textile scraps, we work towards lowering the environmental impact of brand new nylon that uses new resources. This supports our sustainability goals to source recycled content for our carpet tiles.

With Your Help, No Rug Goes to the Landfill

Send us your old carpet tiles and we’ll turn them into new ones.

When old carpet tiles come in, the backing is separated from the yarn and turned into pellets that become new backing. Since 1995, the Interface family of brands keeps millions of pounds of carpet out of landfills each year.
