Eco-Friendly Materials [Happy Earth Day]

Earth.  Earth.  We only have this one planet to call home, so let’s show it some love and support this upcoming Earth Day!

If you’re considering a new floor, consider an eco-friendly option.  It’s almost impossible to live here on the Crystal Coast and not appreciate the beauty of the ocean, the blooming dogwoods, and all the things our home has to offer.  At Eastman’s, we offer wonderful, eco-friendly options for any flooring need.

Shaw Floors has perfected some of their tile collections to help reduce and reuse products.  They take residues from processing industrial sand, glazes and other water waste, and fire scrap tile that is then reprocessed into a brand-new product.  The end result is a 40% post-industrial recycled tile.   Shaw has even been certified by Bureau Veritas, the leading group that tests and inspects eco-friendly products, on 5 tile collections!

If you want to show your support for the environment but tile isn’t the best option for your home, MOHAWK features their EverStrand carpeting that is up to 100% recycled material!  Not only is it made from recycled plastic bottles that make it stand up to heavy abrasion, it has patented PET technology that helps resist dirt and grime.  To finish it off, EverStrand is treated with ScotchGuard to make it water repellent.  A truly durable material that can last a lifetime and is ecologically responsible.


This soft, resilient pattern is called True Match and is from the EverStrand line of recycling carpet.  It comes in 16 different color options and proudly made in the USA.


Looking for something more plush?  Mohawk line Common Values III is part of the EverStrand line as well. It comes in 40 color options and is excellent for any level of traffic.
