Eco Friendly/ Sustainable Floors
We trust that everything we do has a ripple effect, expands out far beyond the current affect of our actions.
Mannington stakes their reputation on taking care of their customers, neighbors and products to include the environment. To the company, sustainability means making the right choices daily and knowing how those decisions will affect the world. That is why Woodwudy Wholesale Flooring has partnered with Mannington as they both value providing a sustainable environment for future generations.
It comes as no surprise that everyone is interested in going green these days. But with the excess exposure of commodities and over-promising, it may be hard to find a trustworthy company. Mannington is a company that has been in the family for many generations and that trust in doing what is right. As far as the environment goes, we do not over promise or mislead. We trust that our actions speak, and in being honest and we have good things to tell.
These pages will help you learn about the flooring industry’s biggest portfolio of commodities with reclaimed content, about our leadership in recycling important and big waste streams from U.S. landfills-carpet, VCT, and drywall-and how we have financed in redesign and redevelopment to include them in high reclaimed content, high performance commodities. For more information, go to woodwudy.com.
You will learn about nearly 3 ½ acres of rooftop solar panels aiding to power our New Jersey institute and which is bigger than other in the flooring industry. About original, non-chemical solutions to lower insect-related commodity issues. About our dedication to be a Net User of Waste, and how this is played out in programs that center on the reuse of solid waste that would build on to the weight of landfills.
As far as the environment, we honestly trust that we are improving the way our entire industry does business merely by doing what is right and doing things right because actions speak louder than words.
Social duty is part of the fabric of Mannington’s culture. We were rehearsing great corporate social duties before it was given that name; its been part of the “Do The Right Thing” ideology for the last 90 or more years.
We honestly have faith that we must keep our communities safe, healthy, and thriving. And aiding others is part of that faith, whether by donations to big national organizations or giving a hand in our own backyards, Mannington colleagues are continuously the initial to answer the cry for help.

Water is the prime ingredient in making every commodity we create and is a precious natural resource. We are doing our part to lower its use in our methods. For example, our Georgia carpet production facilities lower water consumption by 35%. Most of this progress is due to enhanced dyeing methodologies.
Other actions are as easy as changing mowed lawns at our institutions to natural landscaping. Making wildlife habitats with wildflowers and native grasses lowers water consumption and the results are clever and alluring. Customers who want to know more should check out Woodwudy Wholesale Flooring.
Creating Natural Landscape Buffers to Stop Erosion and Runoff
Several years ago, some wetlands bordering our New Jersey site lacked a transitional place between land and water, also called a "riparian buffer". Naturally, these overgrown locations near streams or estuary block erosion and sediment runoff, give cover and provide needed food and shade to fish as well as animals. For more information, go to woodwudy.com.
Along with the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, NJ Audubon Society, and local schools we sowed thousands of native shrubs and trees around our facilities. By sowing these riparian buffers we created areas of shrub-scrub habitat with a life expectancy of more than 30 years (eventually succeeding to forest). In the initial 30+ years of establishment, the project will give habitat for bird species in danger: blue-winged warbler, eastern kingbird, brown thrasher, prairie warbler, eastern towhee and field sparrow.

Having a dedicated goal to better energy efficiency by 25% over ten years, Mannington is advancing with ongoing, meticulous energy management efforts to expand the energy efficiency of all of its operations. We are committed to lowering related carbon emissions.
When we heard about the enormous amounts of drywall choking landfills, we reconfigured our Premium Tile to include pulverized gypsum which is taken from regional construction locations. Only Mannington includes drywall into their flooring.
