CCA Global Partners is the latest flooring group to join Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) as a corporate member. CCA Global Chairman and co-CEO Howard Brodsky made the announcement during the recent annual stockholders' meeting for the Carpet One Floor & Home division. "CCA Global is proud to be a corporate member of CARE, which complements CCA Global's environmental leadership," Brodsky said. "We encourage [CCA Global retailers] to join this organization."
CARE is a nationwide organization committed to the diversion and recycling of post-consumer carpet from the landfill. Since the group's founding in 2002, CARE and its members have diverted more than 1.6 billion lbs. of carpet.
CARE Executive Director Georgina Sikorski said, "We recycle only about five percent of the total amount of discarded carpet in the U.S.; with the support of companies like CCA Global, we can do more."
