Carpets that don't cost the earth
Last year, Spruce Carpets kept 133 tonnes of floor coverings out of the waste stream by adopting a Circular Business Model. Their ‘environmental bottom line’ is integral to their existence and their strategy to create a greener environment includes reclaiming, refurbishing and re-using carpet tiles by commercial on-selling and the sale of ‘end of roll’ carpets.
In addition, they bind small offcuts on-site which are too small to be used in rooms and sell these in both their Glasgow showroom and to 15 supply outlets run by charity partners throughout Scotland. This is evidence of their determination to limit waste and makes best use of carpet offcuts that would otherwise end up in landfill.
