How Old Carpet Gets New Life As Padding…

Over 5 billion pounds per year of used carpet end up in the landfill in the US, according to the Carpet America Recovery Effort. It takes over 50 years to decompose.

Only 3.6 % of carpet is currently recycled.

See in this video how SF Carpet Recycling in San Francisco collects used carpet, and works with Chamlian Enterprises who actually recycle it.

The carpets are broken down, sanitized, rewoven and turned into carpet underlay felt pad for the commercial industry.

Keep forwarding this video, and we may get more of that 96.4% of the used carpet that is headed to the landfill diverted for recycling, given new life as carpet padding!
