As a US Green Building Council LEED AP I often find carpet mill representatives a bit too eager to call their product “green.” It only takes a question or two to get beneath any green-washing, but in this case it was not necessary. We deal directly with the good folks at Earth Weave and they know their “green.”
First, look at the construction:

Don’t be alarmed by the use of hemp in the backing (I’m sure you aren’t, but there may be one out there). Thomas Jefferson said, “It is the duty of every American to plant hemp.” The “hemp” he was referring to is perhaps the most-useful fiber around and he knew what he was talking about.
If you are trying to de-tox your home (wool carpet naturally absorbs impurities as well) this line of carpet is perhaps your single best step. Feel free to email any questions and we will work with you on finding the right answer.

All the best,

Chris

  3. Chris,
    Have you seen Nature’s Carpet? It is made with New Zealand wool, which is superior to the wool Earthweave uses.

    More importantly, Nature’s Carpet has CRI Green Label Plus certification, which is important in getting LEED credit.

    The Dark Green Nature’s Carpet line is completely biodegradable — no synthetics, dyes, mothproofing or other chemicals. Let me know if you would like a few samples.

    I sold 170 yards of Earthweave the other day due to this post! We’re installing it next week and i’m sure that the new owner will be extremely pleased! What a great carpet and at a great price. Especially for an all natural fantastic wool product. I also have a house going for LEED silver in DC wanting the same carpeting. Great product, great price! Win/ win.

    Nature’s carpets are just as great! I just saw the comments. Godfrey Hirst has some great styles as well. Wool is definitely the way to go if raising a family and you are concerned about their health. It’s bio-degradeable in 3 years and actually adds nutrients to the soil when it does. Wool padding will also remove toxins, such as urea formaldehyde, from your home. Great post Chris.
