According to George Bandy, chief sustainability officer of Mohawk Flooring North America, the company is putting a greater effort on becoming a name recognized in the flooring industry and beyond as a sustainability leader. At TISE, that specifically means showing retailers how to sell sustainable features — such as its soft surface products achieving HPDs and Declare labels. It comes down to communication, said Bandy, such as highlighting that every square yard of carpet installed is actually 63 plastic bottles, bottles that have been recycled and kept out of waterways.

"Ask Your Doctor Or Pharmacist About ......" What does this have to do with Flooring? Simple. Media is driving markets. The FCW Weekly piece "Consumers drive demand for waterproof flooring" was spot on. We see this more and more in residential markets and while we used to pay for market surveys, consumer buying trends are providing us with more accurate and timely information. The same trends are becoming prevalent in commercial markets where designers and architects are driving conversations by telling us “Here’s what I want” rather than asking “What do you have?”. Independent sales agencies, suppliers and consultants are being forced to explore products outside their core portfolio in an effort to provide the widest selection of options possible. We are changing the way we do business – and it’s a good thing for our clients and the industry.
