Outline

Carpet Tile was designed to be environmentally friendly. Blast from the Past has used recycled surfacing and packing materials to achieve a “closed circle.” They were the first company in the industry to employ 6.6 nylon post-consumer recycled yarns. It’s another large step towards the company’s Mission Zero? promise to eliminate any negative impact on the environment by 2020. Their starting point “Entropy” adopted a design concept with a natural motif. Carpet tiles make lot management unnecessary, allow installers to lay the tiles out in random order, and reduce waste. In addition, the B&W Collection employs yarn made of bio-based PLA.
