Carpet producer Bentley bags 10th WRAP Award

Bentley Prince Street Inc, a Los Angeles-based commercial carpet manufacturer committed to sustainable commerce, is proud to be one of 285 California businesses and nonprofit organizations to be named a 2010 Waste Reduction Award Program (WRAP) winner by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle).

CalRecycle selected each winner based on its reported waste prevention, recycling and composting, procurement and educational activities. Since the inception of WRAP in 1993, Bentley Prince Street has won the award a total of ten times, and consecutively since 2003, for its outstanding waste reduction programs.

"As part of our journey toward Mission Zero we are continually implementing and refining programs that move us closer to eliminating any negative impact that we may have on the environment by the year 2020," says Anthony Minite, president of Bentley Prince Street. "Being a ten-time WRAP winner distinguishes us as a company committed to preserving our state's natural resources and letting our customers know that we take waste reduction seriously."

Bentley Prince Street has designed a comprehensive approach to waste diversion that engages associates, customers and vendors through a variety of different programs. One of the highlights of Bentley Prince Street's internal recycling and composting program is monthly dumpster dives, where associates volunteer to dig through trash to retrieve recyclables.

The company's ReEntry 2.0 carpet reclamation program ensures that post consumer carpet is reused or recycled rather than discarded. Just recently, the company launched Razor Hill, a new product that reduces waste by utilizing tail ends of yarn from previous product runs within its Easy Street Collection family of broadloom and carpet tile offerings. Bentley Prince Street also practices environmentally preferable purchasing and works to educate its customers on best practices for buying truly green products.

"We began building sustainability into our business in 1994 and every year strive to move closer to our Mission Zero goal with stronger and more effective waste reduction programs," says Kimberly Matsoukas, sustainability manager for Bentley Prince Street. "Receiving the Waste Reduction Award again this year is a wonderful reminder that we are on the right track."

Bentley Prince Street's focus on integrating style and function with environmentally responsible practices has resulted in $203,483 in cost savings and 955 tons of waste diversion last year. Together, this year's WRAP honorees have diverted more than 2 million tons of material from landfills and recorded more than $190 million in cost savings from their waste reduction efforts. Other WRAP honorees include the World Champion San Francisco Giants AT&T Park, Apple and Toyota.
