A.J. Rose Carpets & Flooring has made a commitment
to our environment and our future. Through our Green
Edge initiative we have adopted sustainable, renewable and recyclable
approaches to our business operations. We not only sell environmentally
friendly products, but we operate as a company under those same principles.
What exactly does this mean for you?
When you purchase a Green labeled product at AJ Rose, you are
buying a product that is one or more of the following:
- Sustainable: Flooring made from
technologies which use less energy, fewer limited resources, do not deplete
natural resources, do not directly or indirectly pollute the environment, and
may be reused or recycled at the end of their useful life.
- Renewable: Products that are up to 37% produced by
renewable resources such as corn sugar.
- Recycled: Products that are
made from recycled soda bottles. Recycled carpet
can be made from recycled polyethelene terephthalate (PET) or from recovered
textile fibers. PET plastic is usually found in plastic soda bottles. About 40
two-liter soda bottles are recycled per square yard of carpeting. The backing
used for recycled content carpet is the same as traditional carpets. In
addition, when A.J. Rose disposes old flooring from your home, we dispose of the
old carpet and padding in one of the only carpet recycling facilities in the
state. Keeping carpet out of landfills and reusing carpet and pad for post-
consumer products is a top priority at AJ Rose.
We at A.J. Rose continue to research and explore all initiatives related to the
health of our environment. We are dedicated to making our industry more
responsible and accountable for the decisions we make. Green Edge is one way
that A.J. Rose can participate in the preservation and restoration of our
Look for specially marked Green Edge products at either of our locations.
