Tandus Flooring partnered with the healthcare giant in the search for feedstock from waste streams outside the floorcovering industry. The search yielded ethos, a backing constructed from recycled film found in windshields and safety glass.
Tandus Flooring and Cargill worked together to develop a bio-based sheath core fiber—“Genesis”. The product was displayed at the Copenhagen Climate Conference as a sustainable product.
Tandus Flooring and long-time partner Contract magazine collaborated to create the Inspirations program. The program, launched in 2008, recognizes leadership in socially responsible design among commercial interior designers and architects.
In conjunction with the Center for Health Design, Tandus Flooring is a proud sponsor of the Pebble Project. The Pebble Project provides examples of healthcare organizations whose organizations have made a difference in the quality of care as well as in their financial performance.
