Tandus Centiva ethos® Modular Carpet Tile
Full case study text coming soon.
Utilizing a previously untapped waste stream, Tandus Centiva developed ethos®, a high-performance polymer made with post-consumer PVB, a film recycled from old windshields and safety glass. It is 100% recyclable through Tarkett’s ReStart® reclamation program. Beyond its numerous environmental benefits and Cradle to Cradle® Silver certification, it is the first American modular carpet tile to achieve this level of certification.
For 130 years innovation, dedication to excellence, and a long lasting commitment to sustainability have made Tarkett a global leader in cutting edge flooring solutions and sports surfaces. Driven by the purpose of building a sustainable future, Tarkett is determined to address the major challenges society faces today; combating climate change, managing scarce natural resources sustainably, and promoting people’s well-being and the development of healthy living spaces.
Different from other environmental certifications, The Living Product Challenge not only evaluates a product’s material health or a facility’s energy, water, or waste system, it’s a deeper dive into a manufacturer’s approach to business. Merging efforts behind social, environmental, and human health, The Living Product Challenge provides an opportunity to highlight all the good that manufacturing personnel do on a daily basis.
With this benchmark, Tarkett will continue to challenge our teams and push the boundaries further. As pioneers, we hope to inspire manufacturers across industries to follow suit. We believe next-generation products are Living Products.
