Carpet maker Tai Ping has earned a sustainable carpet certification with a rating of Silver from NSF International. The NSF/ANSI 140-2007 Sustainable Carpet Assessment standard accounts for every stage in production and distribution processes, from the use of recycled materials to factory emissions, and the quality of the working environment.

“Tai Ping has been serious about sustainability for a long time--it’s critical to our success in business and to the future of our industry generally, not to mention the planet,” said James Kaplan, ceo. “Working towards sustainability is a constant process and an enduring goal.”
