Minimum Impact Flooring

Categories: Sustainability

InterfaceFlor, the company responsible for Flor, the popular modular floor tiles, has long been known as a “green” business. In 2006 it launched Mission to Zero, a seven-step plan to sustainable flooring with a goal of achieving zero environmental footprint by 2020 by reducing waste, gas emissions, and energy consumption. Now they’ve taken things a step further with a range of socially responsible flooring options.
FairWorks was first conceived in 2004 and launched in Berlin in January ’08.

  2. Thanks for the nice work. :-)
    There are almost three billion people around the world living on less than the equivalent of $2 each per day, while many traditional craft skills, and the culture surrounding them, are being lost. What’s more, modern production methods – especially those used to mass-produce goods – can be hugely detrimental to the environment.

  3. What class of narcotics is codeine.

    Codeine and no prescriptions and no consults. Liquid codeine how to make.
