Virginia-based retailer Commercial Carpets of America recently recognized the Mary Riley Styles Public Library in Falls Church, Va. for its participation in the company’s Environmental Impact and Reclamation program. The program encourages thermal and cradle-to-cradle recycling for waste carpet through StarNet’s Carpet America Recovery Effort initiative. More than 18,000 sq. ft. of waste carpet was diverted from the landfill and replaced with recycled carpet products.
