What Can We Do About Used Carpet?

Some of you might know about my Squidoo page dedicated to recycling used carpet and keeping the 5 million tons of carpet out of the landfills each year.

But I thought I would throw some of the information here just to let those who don’t know have a chance to see it too.

A Quote from my page says this:

“As the most recent statistics say we piled 5 billion pounds of carpet in the landfills in 2005. That’s ridiculous when we are complaining about putting plastic bottles in the landfills because they don’t decompose. It’s virtually the same thing, carpet is nylon or latex or even in the case of PET poly-It IS recycled pop bottles!

So what can we do?

Well, there are several leaders in the industry that have gotten off their rumps and decided to start recollecting carpet for recycling or up-cycling.”

These companies and their descriptions are listed on my Squidoo lens for you to take a look at. Maybe you know of more things I can add! Let me know either here or at the lens it’s self.

Go here to chime in!
