Carpet America Recovery Effort Receives Environmental Business Award

Congratulations, CARE!

In recognition for its achievements in diverting post-consumer carpet from America’s landfills, the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) has received a 2009 Business Achievement Award from Environmental Business Journal, a publication of strategic information developer Environmental Business International. Specifically, CARE won a Project Merit award in the category of Sustainability and Resource Protection.


CARE was formed as a result of the Memorandum of Understanding for Carpet Stewardship (MOU), a national agreement signed by members of the carpet industry, representatives of government agencies at the federal, state and local levels and non-governmental organizations. CARE works to develop market-based solutions for recovering value from discarded carpet in order to facilitate the achievement of the organization’s ultimate goal of a 40% diversion rate of post consumer carpet from the nation’s landfills.
