Gerflor, a global leader in the design and manufacture of vinyl resilient floor coverings, recently announced its Sample Reuse Program exclusively through its website at www.gerflor-us.com. By visiting the environment section of the website, visitors can print off a prepaid U.S. postage label and return Gerflor vinyl flooring samples to its Atlanta office for reuse and redistribution. The Sample Reuse Program aims to reduce environmental impact and creates a new way to achieve sustainable results.
“For more than 20 years, Gerflor has been committed to the concept of creating environmentally friendly products by making the strategic decision to place ‘green’ issues at the top of its agenda,” said Alan Fennell, president of commercial flooring. “The Sample Reuse Program is yet another way we show our commitment to the environment and further extends our leadership in developing sustainability practices.”
“When designing a space, we use samples to convey concepts or ideas to colleagues and clients,” said Robyn Dubick, interior designer, CR Goodman Associates. “With Gerflor’s new Sample Reuse Program, we have the opportunity to return unused samples that will ultimately help conserve natural resources and reduce the negative impact on the environment.”
Steps for mailing samples back to Gerflor:
• Print off the prepaid United States Postage label and instructions
• Pack the samples back into the original packaging or other box/envelope
• Give package to your mail delivery person or drop it off at the nearest post office
