Our Proactive Sustainability Activity
For Carpet Binders: Our Sustainability Initiatives
Carpet Binders is committed to sustainable best practice for our industry and, where possible, seek to minimalize our footprint.
- Recycling and upcycling carpet scraps to minimalize our landfill deposits.
- We sort out recyclable and non-recyclable waste.
- Plastic cones are set aside for creative minds at preschools and early childhood education providers.
- Small wool carpet scraps are upcycled into native seedling moisture holders and weed protector mats, with profits from the sales going to the Kaiapoi East Residents Association, Pocket Forest Regeneration Initiative in the former Kaiapoi East Red Zone.
Staff members are regularly involved in native planting days to give back to the community and increase the pathways or corridors for native birds to fly from the Alps to the Coast of the South Island. The flight corridors provide food and resting spaces for our native birds and other wildlife, such as geckos and skink, which are not found anywhere else in the world.
We proudly support any initiatives that encourage the advancement and inclusion of deaf people in the wider community.
Use our convenient pick-up and return delivery service or drop your carpet scraps off at our workshop located at Unit 14, No 37 Washbournes Rd, Sockburn Christchurch.
