Water Conservation

Water is a vital resource to all life on Earth. We are helping consumers conserve it – for their own utility bills, and for the planet.

For many environmentally conscious consumers, carpet isn’t on their list of go-to flooring choices. But today’s carpet is a much different product. In particular, the carpet you find at The Home Depot reflects a whole new generation of flooring. The carpet industry is quickly moving towards a more sustainable future and its being led by a handful of innovative manufacturers.

Situated in Northeast, Georgia in the heart of the carpet capital is one such company. Engineered Floors is one of the manufacturers behind the Home Decorators Collection of indoor carpets for The Home Depot.

Engineered Floors’ PureColor® carpets are made with solution-dyed polyester fibers. You may recognize the term “SD Polyester” from HomeDepot.com product details. Don’t be fooled by the simplistic name. This carpet material represents an innovative technology that delivers outstanding performance along with tremendous environmental efficiencies.

See how PureColor® carpets are made and how the process is saving tons of water and carbon.
