ReSource Members join CARE Aligned Dealer Program
Feb '10
ReSource Commercial Flooring Network, LLC (ReSource) and Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) announce the addition of ReSource’s membership network of commercial flooring dealers to CARE’s Aligned Dealer Program.

ReSource represents 64 commercial flooring dealers at 97 locations across the U.S. “ReSource dealers are a welcome addition to CARE’s Aligned Dealers Program,” said CARE Executive Director Georgina Sikorski. CARE seeks to find market-based solutions to the challenging problem of post-consumer carpet contributing to crowded landfills. Since its inception in 2002 as a joint industry-government effort, CARE has helped divert over 1.3 billion pounds of post-consumer carpet from landfills, and has led efforts to find and market new products that can be made from materials derived from post-consumer carpet. Examples include new carpet, fiber cushion for carpet underlay, injection-molded auto parts and various plastic consumer products. CARE’s Aligned Dealer program offers carpet dealers a cost-effective opportunity to join CARE and support carpet recycling.

“ReSource has consistently supported CARE as a corporate member, and we are pleased that our members have chosen to support CARE individually as well,” said ReSource Vice-President Ken Daniels. “Partnering with CARE on the membership as well as the corporate level further demonstrates ReSource’s comprehensive commitment to environmental sustainability,” he added.

For their membership, ReSource dealers receive a membership kit that includes specially-developed marketing materials designed to help them identify themselves as CARE members and promote carpet recycling and reuse. “CARE membership is solid evidence that ReSource Member Owners support the mission of CARE and are making a sustainable difference,” said Sikorski.
