Adairsville, GA March 16, 2012- Home Legend, a leading supplier of hardwood, bamboo, laminate, cork and luxury vinyl flooring, was one of six national flooring manufacturers who participated in a first-ever recycling effort following the January 2012 Surfaces/StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas in Las Vegas.
The Adairsville, GA-based
company donated 5,400 square feet of flooring product used in its Surfaces
display to a joint venture organized by two not-for-profit organizations,
Mountain Re-Source Center and Tile Partners for Humanity, to benefit multiple
