CARE has produced a catalog highlighting the range of products that contain California-sourced post-consumer recycled carpet. Featured products include insulation, wheelchair ramps, heavy-duty mats, decking, carpet cushion and, yes, carpet. The products would help state agencies to comply with the SABRC mandate and may help businesses trying to obtain environmental certifications such as LEED.
Several products are designated Double GreenTM, meaning they contain recycled California post-consumer carpet material plus at least one other post-consumer recycled material.
The catalog is part of the California Carpet Stewardship Program’s efforts to expand both the range of products and the market for recycled carpet material. Expanding demand for recycled carpet content will bring the state closer to its mandate that 24% of post-consumer carpet must be recycled by 2020
To learn more about products using recycled carpet material and the Double GreenTM designation, contact Market Development Consultant Mike Tinney to request a product presentation, made in collaboration with CalRecycle’s tire derived products group.
