Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE)
Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) is an organization dedicated to advance market-based solutions that increase landfill diversion and recycling of post-consumer carpet, encourage design for recyclability and meet meaningful goals as approved by the CARE Board of Directors.
Interior Surface Enterprises is a proud member of CARE, and are thrilled that they have
recently celebrated their tenth birthday! When put together, the result was a national effort that has diverted more than 2.3 billion pounds of post-consumer carpet from being thrown away as well as helped spearhead the creation of a landmark bill in California—AB 2398—which calls for the collection of an after-sale consumer surcharge of 5 cents a square foot on new carpet purchases with the money going toward incentivizing recycling innovation. Pretty cool huh?
