Going Green & Recycling

 

In 2007 McSwain launched the Green Initiative Program. We are proud to be one of a few retailers nationwide to recycle floor covering. McSwain recycles carpet, carpet cushion, plastic and paper products. All for a healthier environment with less waste.

We recycle carpet and carpet cushion removed from existing homes during the installation of new floor covering.

Green Flooring

Cork

  • Beautiful, durable option
  • Environmentally sound
  • Harvested from the bark of the Cork Oak tree – better than a renewable resource because only the bark is harvested
  • Resilient – bounces back when pushed on and is very comfortable to walk on
  • Durable – composition of cork makes it resistant to wear and tear
  • Hypoallergenic – dust cannot be absorbed or released from cork
  • Insulator – reduces the transmission of heat and sound
  • Mold & Mildew Resistant – Suberin, a natural waxy substance, seals the cork preventing mold or mildew growth

 

Bamboo

  • Growing in popularity as an alternative to hardwood flooring
  • Environmentally friendly – grown and cultivated quickly
  • Bamboo is as strong as hardwood floors
  • Strong & Durable – strength makes it durable and dent-resistant. It’s strength does not make it heavy, yet it is lightweight.
  • Appealing Look – maintains its look under high traffic
  • Versatility – bamboo beats out other hardwoods on moisture resistance, making it a smart choice for kitchens and bathrooms
