You’ve probably noticed that everyone and their brother are going “green” these days, whether they sell washers or widgets. While we applaud them for their efforts, one could question whether or not it’s out of their love for the environment or because a changing consumer landscape made them more aware (that’s an argument for the talking heads to tackle, not me.)
The one thing I know is that one of my guiding principles (as I learned in the Boy Scouts) is to leave this earth how I found it (or better.) That’s why I personally travel around the glove to try and inspect each manufacturing facility to ensure that no unneeded chemicals are used in the process or that potentially toxic waste is being dumped into surrounding rivers and streams. We even help promote the idea that proper re-forestation practices are followed, that worker conditions are not substandard and to the extent possible that recyclable and reusable materials are used wherever possible. Bottom line, if you don’t pass my “smell” test, we will not buy or sell your products.
To try and bring a little more awareness to the huge strides made in “green” flooring, we’ll be offering Free Shipping on select Green Floors (60% off shipping on everything else.)
In a nutshell, I think they’re gorgeous and that you’ll love them. So much as that I’m willing to pay a little more so you can experience them. It definitely doesn’t cost me any less to ship Green Floors like Cork or Bamboo, but anything I can do to perpetuate their use, I will do. Heck, you can do your part to help save us all the emissions of unnecessary shipping by picking up at your local iFloor store on select items.
They aren’t for everyone, and that’s why we carry 3,000 different products and have a bigger selection than anyone. But if you’re in the market for flooring, you should definitely take a look at the “green” alternatives and I’ll try to give you the incentive to do just that. But whatever floor you do end up purchasing, you’re definitely in the right place!
