Mannington: Sustainability in Action

Carpet Express is proud to offer flooring manufacturers like Shaw, Mohawk, Armstrong, and Mannington, all of whom have made outstanding commitments to sustainability. Mannington is a fourth-generation, family-owned company that believes in doing the right thing. When it comes to the environment, they believe that their actions speak louder than words. Below, you’ll see a few of the initiatives that Mannington has developed to promote ecological well-being and ensure they are at the forefront of responsible manufacturing.

Save the Honey Bees!!

We all KNOW how important honey bees are to everything in our day to day lives.  In 2009, Mannington began introducing bee colonies at their manufacturing plant in New Jersey. Since then, they have expanded the initiative to include another colony location at their Florida plant. Read more about their honey bee initiative here

Solar POWER

Harnessing the power of the sun! Mannington’s New Jersey facility is home to over 3,900 solar panels on 3.3 acres. This is one of the largest arrays of solar power in the flooring industry, and that’s just impressive. Check out more about their solar initiative here

Better Plants Partner

Along with Armstrong, Mohawk and Shaw Industries, Mannington is committed to reducing the energy intensity of their operations by 25% in 10 years through a program started by the US Department of Energy. As of today, they have achieved 18% energy improvement from baseline consumption. At this point, they are on target to reach their goals!

Pesticides vs. Purple Martins

Now this is seriously incredible. No need for pesticides here! Using a migrating bird species to control pests, while ensuring the longevity of the species by providing a safe spot during migration. Seriously. Just smart stuff. Read more about the project here

Reuse (Dry Wall)

Mannington is proud to offer several types and styles of flooring that promote the reduce/reuse/recycle credo. One in particular is absolutely fascinating. Think about the amount of drywall that comes from renovation projects, new home construction, old home deconstruction and literally any place that has walls or used to have walls. That is SO MUCH potential waste filling up our landfills. Well, Mannington decided they wanted to help reduce that drywall-to-earth ratio by taking that would be trash and turning it into sustainable flooring. Products like the BioSpec RE resilient commercial flooring is made up by 20% post-consumer carpet as well as 15% post-consumer content. Click here to check out the BioSpec RE commercial flooring. Check out the video below from Mannington describing the idea and process behind this initiative!

Mannington has one of the largest portfolio of products with recycled content. What does this all mean for you and your next design project or remodel? Glad you asked- Carpet Express offers incredible deals on Mannington hardwood, laminate, and vinyl. We’re also just here to help if you need some info! Give us a call or stop by the showroom to check out some of Mannington’s products up-close and personal!

Floor Pillows

hawaiian-felt-pillows-11Having a great floor is one of the most essential parts of any home, and there are so many different choices when it comes to flooring. A great floor can be made even better with a beautiful or fun area rug, but lately there has been a new trend in the floor design world. Floor pillows or floor cushions are becoming more popular by the day. Floor pillows come in many different sizes, colors, shapes, and designs. They add a bit of comfort or personality to the room. They are great to rest your feet on, use as extra seats when company comes over, or even as chairs for your pets.
Many people make their own floor cushions and it is not hard to do. You can find any DIY floor cushion instructions online. However, if you don’t want to make your own then many home decor stores sell them now. I have even seen them sold at large name brand stores you can find in any mall. Floor pillows are a great addition for bedrooms or living rooms. If you have a game room in your home or maybe a movie room, then you can get a few floor cushions to add some more personality to the room. Floor cushions can add accents to the room or they can go along with the rest of the color scheme, but always remember that floor cushions are designed to make the room more creative and fun.
