CARE has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a Reuse Study on Post-Consumer Carpet Barriers and Opportunities.
The purpose of this project is to inform CARE on the possible barriers and opportunities to increasing the reuse of carpet as a floor covering. Since inception in 2011, statistics on the amount of carpet diverted through reuse generally reflects an upward trajectory; however, since a high of 926,000 pounds in 2016, reuse has seemingly plateaued.
Deadline for proposal submission is noon Pacific, March 5, 2021.
Preference is given to California-based proposers.
