Why Carpet Is a Sustainable Flooring Choice

Lovely couple flirting on carpet

Now more than ever, it’s important to choose building materials that are environmentally friendly and sustainable. You may not think at first that carpet fits that bill, but the truth is that it does.

It’s important to the carpet industry to minimize their carbon footprint. Carpet has a remarkably long life in the first place, which means you don’t have to replace it for years unless you simply tire of it. Beyond that, however, carpet that has been spent is often recycled into other useful objects, such as automotive parts, railroad ties, and building materials like shingles.

So if you’re concerned about your home’s carbon footprint, take comfort in knowing that carpet is just as eco-friendly and sustainable as any of your other options, if not more so in some cases. Come by Bay Carpet when you’re ready for your carpet installation, or to browse for ideas for your home remodel. Call (718) 521-4308 for more information, or check out our website today!
