When purchasing carpets, cushions, and adhesives, you should always check for the green label/green label plus. The Green Label program was launched by The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) in 1992. They created this program to test which carpets, cushions, and adhesives have the lowest emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Recently, CRI has created an improved program called the Green Label Plus. The Green Label Plus program sets a higher standard of indoor air quality (IAQ), and it makes sure that customers are purchasing the very lowest emitting products on the market today. The Green Label Plus program shows that the carpet industry is working to make a better environment for living, working, learning, and healing.
