Carpeting and Flooring

Why it Matters

Flooring products can pose hidden threats from a host of toxic chemicals and can affect the health of the building occupants and the broader community. Carpet and resilient flooring are widely used in a range of settings and are an important product category to prioritize for health and sustainability. Fortunately, healthier options are emerging.
