Some 4.6 billion pounds of used carpeting wound up in landfills last year. Raw carpet tile puts the waste to good use. It's made from a new yarn composed of a combination of reclaimed carpet fiber, salvaged fishing nets and postindustrial waste. The tiles look no different from regular carpeting, but each contains up to 29 percent post-consumer recycled content and 79 percent recycled content overall. $31 per square yard
If this article read 4.7 billion pounds of used carpeting, I could only imagine each person on Earth could have a synthetic coat. I am just saying.
But, I really do not know how much synthetic material goes into a coat.
enough with the bloody spam!
anyways the count is up to 7 billion people in the world so you know, asia can go to hell or something... idk.
to mars or bust!
$31 a square yard? Seems a bit high for carpet doesn't it? As much as I like the sound of recycled products for homes like recycled glass countertops the cost for such products is prohibitively high for me.
Science always asks "can we," but doesn't seem to ask "should we."
