After a life-changing epiphany, Ray Anderson, CEO, embarks on a high-stakes quest to eliminate all negative environmental impacts Interface has on the environment by 2020.
Interface launches FLOR, its speciality design brand, to create stylish rugs for residential homes.
FLOR begins its Return & Recycle program, inviting customers to mail their old tiles back to be recycled into a beautiful new rug.
Once your FLOR has lived its useful life, send us your old tiles and we’ll turn them into new ones.
Interface becomes the first brand in carpet or apparel to use Aquafil’s ECONYL® yarn, made from 100% regenerated nylon waste.
ECONYL® nylon is the same as brand-new nylon but doesn’t utilize new resources.
FLOR publishes verified carbon footprint data for all products.
We achieved Mission Zero™ success in 2019 ahead of the original 2020 target.
FLOR utilizes materials that have sequestered carbon from the atmosphere, creating our first ever carbon negative area rugs.
Interface has pledged to become carbon negative by 2040.Learn more
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.
We set a goal to have no 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.Recycle Your Rug
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.Read More
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.Shop Now
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.Learn More
…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
Have FLOR rugs throughout my house, love them. They look fantastic are from recycled material and so easy to clean up even with pets.— Adriane
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
