Carpet America Recovery Effort's (CARE) California Carpet Stewardship Program has unveiled a new designation for post-consumer recycled-carpet products.
Double Green products contain California post-consumer carpet material and at least one other recycled material, both diverted from California landfills. One newly-created product comes from Modesto's Sierra Mat and Rubber, which produces wheel stops and floor mats made with recycled-tire crumb rubber mixed with post-consumer calcium carbonate from recycled carpet.
Sierra Mat's Double Green product is also one of the more than 25 products available from 10 different vendors offering products eligible for CARE's Recycled Carpet Procurement Grants.
