Division 9 Flooring is big on environmental sustainability. Over the past 7 years, we’ve diverted thousands of pounds of carpet and pad from the landfill. When we partnered with Habitat for Humanity last year, our intention was to find a cause in our area that would put our materials to good use through repurposing. That’s exactly what we’ve accomplished with Habitat for Humanity. We’ve donated somewhere in the neighborhood of $400,000 worth of goods to Habitat for Humanity Snohomish County.
Some of the materials have gone to Habitat for Humanity homes and some have been delivered to the new Habitat for Humanity store that opened this year in Lynnwood. Habitat for Humanity got creative and used Mohawk Group Boulder 36 inch LVT tiles in the River Rock color as counter top material. The result is great and Habitat for Humanity gets extra credit for creativity.
Habitat for Humanity stores sell donated materials at 30-50% less than the original retail value. Proceeds go to help increase the number of Habitat for Humanity homes and prevent usable items from going into landfills. A cause Division 9 Flooring can get behind 100%.
Some of the materials donated by Division 9 Flooring have gone to Habitat for Humanity projects, like Altena Gardens in Marysville. It’s a 5 home project that will house 5 partner families, including ten adults and fourteen children. The build is currently over half way complete. Upon completion, more than 150 volunteers will have donated their time and energy to this project. The project gets its name from the previous land owners, Al and Tena Raap.
Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity brings to light what we can do together for our environment. Sustainability is a priority in every decision we make at Division 9 Flooring.
