All our broadloom and modular tiles are manufactured within the United States. BOLYU’s modular tiles are 100% PVC free and contain at least 40% post consumer recycle content along with up to 30% pre consumer recycle content. In 2013, our tile manufacturing process alone diverted over 30 million PET plastic bottles from the landfill. We use 100% recyclable cardboard with 20% recycled content for our tile packaging. All our broadloom and Nexterra tiles are manufactured in an EPA GreenPower Partner facility and we have been purchasing green energy since 2008. Beaulieu actively recycles our office paper, cardboard, plastics, aluminum, scrap metal, carpet remnants, yarn waste, shear lint and backing scraps. We are making a push to be entirely landfill-free by 2015.
LEED credit is style specific depending which styles are ordered. Our Nexterra tiles have LEED credit available for MR Credit 4 (Recycled Content), MR Credit 5.1 and 5.2 (Regional Materials), EQ Credit 4.1 (Low Emitting Materials: Adhesives), EQ Credit 4.3 (Low Emitting Materials: Carpet Systems) and Innovation in Design SCAS Credit (Sustainable Carpet Standard/NSF-140 Platinum).
