Salem, N.J. -- Mannington recently donated more than 20,000 sq ft of flooring to two Habitat for Humanity ReStores—discount home improvement and donation centers that sell gently used home improvement and decorative items, with the proceeds going toward serving their missions. Mannington donates flooring used in the company’s trade show booths and for new product photo shoots that, otherwise, may have been discarded and ended up in a landfill.
More than 16,000 sq ft of sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl tile, laminate, and hardwood flooring went to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Greater Greensboro, N.C. The flooring, used for a marketing photo shoot, was like new but couldn’t be sold at retail because it had been temporarily used in the room set for the photo shoot. Founded in 1987, Habitat Greensboro builds about 10 homes annually and its ReStore opened in 2000.
The Las Vegas Habitat for Humanity ReStore recently received about 4,000 sq ft of like-new laminate, hardwood, and commercial carpet that Mannington had used in its Surfaces trade show booth. Founded in 1991, Habitat for Humanity of Las Vegas builds single-family homes throughout Clark County for working families earning less than 80% of area median income. Its first ReStore opened in 2007 and a second one opened in 2010.
“In Habitat ReStores, homeowners can purchase the flooring at a significant discount, with the proceeds going to this worthy cause,” said Betsy Amoroso, Mannington’s senior director of corporate communications. “This also helps the environment by diverting flooring from landfills. It’s a win for everyone involved.”
