Green Living Ideas and Carlisle Wide Plank Floors Launch Green Building Center
Web Site Helps Consumers Build and Remodel in Greener Fashion.
Santa Rosa, CA and Stoddard, NH (PRWEB) August 8, 2007 — Green Living Ideas,
the world’s most comprehensive green living Web site containing
information on over 200 different categories of green and sustainable
living information, and Carlisle Wide Plank Floors ,
a leading manufacturer of sustainable products including 100%
Post-Consumer Reclaimed Antique Wood, announced today Carlisle’s
exclusive sponsorship of the green and sustainable flooring education
center within GreenLivingIdeas.com’s Green Building category. The
content under the site’s Green Building/Flooring section will provide
consumers looking to “go green” with information that can help them
make environmentally-conscious, sustainable decisions when it comes to
the flooring uses in their green home building and remodeling projects.
Through this endeavor, Green Living Ideas and Carlisle seek to jointly
educate consumers on topics relevant to consumer health and
environmental sustainability, such as renewable/reclaimed wood flooring
options, flooring options for healthy homes, and best practices on
floor installation, sealing, and long-term care and maintenance.
The main page of the Flooring section of the Green Living Ideas Web
site, for which Carlisle is the exclusive sponsor, is located at http://greenlivingideas.com/green-building/flooring.html.
All information on the site is provided by objective expert authors and
“Green Gurus,” and is provided to visitors at no-cost thanks to
Carlisle’s advertising support.
“At Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, we’ve always believed that being
‘green’ means the responsible and accountable use — and reuse — of
all our natural resources,” stated Don Carlisle, President of Carlisle
Wide Plank floors. “Sustainability has always been a guiding principle
at Carlisle, so we are thrilled to have the opportunity to support
Green Living Ideas in providing consumers with this kind of valuable
information for their green building projects.”
“We’re very excited to have Carlisle as our partner in presenting this
information to our eco-conscious consumer audience,” said Sean Daily,
founder and CEO of Green Living Ideas. “Carlisle is one of the few
flooring companies in the world that has, from its inception,
demonstrated a sincere and demonstrable commitment to
environmentally-responsible manufacturing practices, and as such they
were a natural fit for this category of the GreenLivingIdeas.com site.”
About Carlisle Wide Plank Flooring
Every aspect of business at Carlisle Wide Plank Floors is based on
their founding principles of sustainability and stewardship. Carlisle’s
FSC certified 100% Post-Consumer Reclaimed Antique Wood comes from
structures that have been slated for demolition. The structures, many
of which are hundreds of years old, are dismantled board by board and
then handcrafted to live a second life as a floor. For over 40 years,
Carlisle has hand selected and milled traditional wide plank flooring
to create unique environments and lifestyles for its customers.
Carlisle operates Design Centers in Stoddard, NH, Denver, CO, Atlanta,
GA, and a fourth location will open later this year in West Hollywood,
CA. For more information on the wide variety of Carlisle 100%
Post-Consumer Reclaimed Antique Wood or any of other wide plank floors,
