As a mark of its commitment to environmentally friendly products, Bentley Prince Street has achieved special "green" certification for its standard broadloom and carpet tile products. Specifically, the company has received Sustainable Choice Gold/Environmentally Preferable Product (EPP) certification from third-party certifier Scientific Certification Systems. Bentley Prince Street has also been recognized with California Gold certification, modeled closely after the stringent EPP standards.

"Our goal has always been to design and manufacture products that were both beautiful and environmentally sustainable," said Anthony Minite, Bentley Prince Street president. "We hope this objective third-party certification will both help and encourage the marketplace to identify and choose products that protect our planet's natural resources."

Additionally, the City of Industry, Calif.-based company launched a new standard backing for its broadloom products. Called High PerformancePC, the backing is made using mineral residue produced as a byproduct from the post-consumer paper recycling industry. According to Bentley Prince Street, the resulting backing is both extremely durable and environmentally friendly.
