Green Flooring Information at your Fingertips!
Eco–friendly carpet is becoming a prominent flooring product and FindAnyFloor.com® has created a
section dedicated to green carpet information to help bring attention to this important step in environmentally friendly
building materials. In this new green flooring section you will discover what makes a carpet eco–friendly, help with
buying green carpet made from recycled material, and even about LEED certification and how the right eco–friendly carpet can earn you credits
in the USGBC's LEED system.
There are many factors that go into deciding how "green" a product or practice is. In this section we go through the
various levels from the top down: the eco–system, society, carbon footprints, the individual and environment, and of
course, green flooring information. We also take a look at the various factors that impact a floor's "greenness" – and
you might be surprised to discover that some things you thought were green may not be, and vice versa.

Much more goes into having green floors than your choice of surface layer. There's the subfloor to consider, the
underlay, trims and adhesives. Once the floor is down, there is still the question of the greenness of finishes and cleaners.
All of these things can have consequences for the environment whether it relates to what they're made of, how they were
manufactured, if they "off–gas" and more. Don't worry, we can point you in the right direction.
In this section you'll find information on eco–friendly organizations, certifications and education. The U.S.
Green Building Council issues LEED certification for example which is becoming a well known and sought after certification.
As the world is becoming more environmentally conscious, more organizations are offering education classes and certifications
to those wishing to contribute to the green cause. For instance, it is possible to become a LEED Accredited Professional.
