Ever hear of carpet tiles? How about green carpet tiles? Simply Greenâ€™s carpet tile is a great alternative to regular carpeting because each tile is made from recycled, renewable and environmentally friendly materials.
Quite honestly, thereâ€™s a whole whack of reasons why carpet tile is worth checking out, but in the interest of brevity, Iâ€™ll touch on a few of the ones I thought were the coolest. For one, Simply Green uses domestically grown soybeans to replace 90% of the petroleum based polymers that are found in polyurethane carpet backings. Celceram, a highly-refined material recovered via coal combustion, is used for the tilesâ€™ backing, adding to their durability. The tiles are built to last and easy to clean, and compared to regular carpet, are less likely to absorb moisture by over 80%. Simply Greenâ€™s tiles have 30% less petroleum than standard carpet made with nylon, which I think is fantasticâ€”the less reliant we are on foreign energy, the better.
If all of the above doesnâ€™t make you think twice about installing regular carpeting again, consider this: carpet tiles are far easier to install than wall-to-wall. With all of the work that goes in to laying standard carpeting, lifting the tiles out of the box and putting them on the floor is a breeze by comparison. And with less work comes less wasteâ€”this method will reduce the amount of waste that a typical carpet install would generate by up to 20%. Plus? You can mix and match tiles to make your own patternsâ€”can’t do that with conventional carpet! Simply Green carpet tiles are, quite simply, a smart alternative from a forward-thinking company.
