When most people think about sustainability, end-of-life becomes their focal point: using recycled materials and selecting products that can be recycled after use. The concern with focusing on recycling is that it puts your attention on the end of a product's life, rather than working to maximize its useful life.
Additionally, products with a high percentage of recycled content are often less durable than products using virgin materials, meaning the lifecycle of each product is shorter than it could be - and as a result things need replacing sooner.
Fortunately, there are many ways to be sustainable that may be a better fit for your client's organization. Today, I'm sharing three ideas to inspire interior designers to make sustainability a priority - without compromising on the quality of design or product.

A significant amount of time and effort goes into selecting the right commercial carpet for clients - marrying desired aesthetics with practical requirements - but the type of adhesive used is often overlooked in the decision-making process.

Today we're sharing five key aspects to look for when reviewing carpet tile adhesive.
