As the largest recycler in the flooring industry, we are proud to put our North American ReCover program to use in helping #CushionTheFight.
Each year, we support the Susan G. Komen 3-Day walks that help raise money and awareness to fight breast cancer, and one of the ways we participate is by supplying our SmartCushion carpet padding to be used during the events.
This year, we will be handing out more than 7,000 pieces of SmartCushion for the hardworking volunteers and courageous walkers to sit and sleep on during the Komen 3-Day events in cities across the country from August through November. But that’s only part of our SmartCushion story.
At the end of each event, we collect the used cushion from the walkers and volunteers and donate it to our nearest ReCover partner to divert it from the landfills. More than 10,000 pounds of cushion are expected to be recovered from this year’s Komen 3-Day events and delivered to recycling centers. The used cushion will be recycled to become new carpet cushion once again.
In addition to recycling cushion from the Komen events, our ReCover program helps companies and individuals divert millions of pounds of carpet and cushion from landfills across North America.
We salute all the courageous walkers and hardworking volunteers who will participate in this year’s Komen 3-Day events to fight breast cancer. And we are proud to activate our ReCover program as we help to #CushionTheFight.
