Karastan's environmental leadership - we call it Eco Chic. Making a commitment to environmentalism means more than talk; it means taking responsibility for the entire lifecycle of your carpet - from cradle to cradle. Responsible processes, beautiful products, a cleaner world.
As a leader in the carpet and rug industry, Karastan holds a position of environmental responsibility that it takes seriously. Our efforts to use sustainable ingredients, preserve natural resources, and repurpose excess are continual. We strive to develop responsible solutions and willingly plan ahead to optimize improvement in all areas of environmental stewardship. In keeping with these principles, we aggressively research, develop, and employ new ways of preserving our planet and of producing products that improve the health and comfort of your home.
A growing number of organizations are putting together guidelines for green products and sustainable building practices. Those that are most respected include CRI Green Label and Green Label Plus, LEED for Home and NAHB Green Home Building. Read More
