Every year on April 22nd, we celebrate Earth Day, but not many people know what it’s all about.
Earth day, in a nutshell, is a continued fight for a clean environment. It promotes the importance of a clean earth and encourages people to do what they can to help.
How can YOU help?
In the words of Gandhi, “The good man is the friend of all living things.” These words still ring true today. It is important for all of us to care about our world and what happens to it. It’s also important to know about the history of earth day and what you can do to help.
Here at The Carpet Guys, we care about our environment and the people who live in it. We are doing anything that we can to make this world better, but what about you?
Have you ever thought about what you can do to better the planet?

Impact the Environment starting with your Floors
Everyone can do something to make this earth a better place to live. A great way to make an impact is getting eco-friendly flooring throughout your home!
Ninety percent of the products the we carry are made of eco-friendly recyclable products. Rather than stuffing up the landfills with old carpeting, our products can be recycled and reused for a better purpose.
A great example is the line of products we have from Shaw Floors. Shaw wants to have a healthy impact on the planet and on the health of humanity. They also stand with carpet recycling as the proper way of disposal.
We are proud to work with Shaw and other manufacturers that support eco-friendly flooring. If you want to get better floors that will last longer and look better, we have it here.
Book a free carpet estimate with us today to view multiple samples of recyclable flooring under your home’s lighting. We will bring our store to your door.
After your installation is complete, you can visit the Carpet America Recovery Effort to find a local carpet recycler near you. They have a wide list of sources all over the United States including Great Lakes Recycling.
We hope that you will do your part in making the earth a better place to live for this generation and the next. Together, we can impact the environment in a positive way.
