Mannington is expanding on its partnership with Habitat for Humanity. The company announced that its association with Habitat helps in a unique way that benefits the environment—by donating flooring used in the company’s trade show booths and for new product photo shoots that, otherwise, may have been discarded and ended up in a landfill.
Recently, Mannington donated over 20,000 square feet of flooring to two Habitat for Humanity ReStores. Over 16,000 square feet of sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl tile, laminate and hardwood flooring went to the Greater Greensboro, North Carolina, Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The flooring, used for a marketing photo shoot, was like new but couldn’t be sold at retail because it had been temporarily used in the room set for the photo shoot. Founded in 1987, Habitat Greensboro builds about ten homes annually; and its ReStore opened in 2000.
The Las Vegas Habitat for Humanity ReStore recently received about 4,000 square feet of like new laminate, hardwood and commercial carpet that Mannington had used in its Surfaces trade show booth. Founded in 1991, Habitat for Humanity of Las Vegas builds single family homes throughout Clark County for working families earning less than 80 percent of area media income. Its first ReStore opened in 2007, and a second one opened in 2010.
Habitat for Humanity ReStores are discount home improvement and donation centers that sell gently used home improvement and decorative items, with the proceeds going toward serving their missions.
