Customer-Friendly; Environment-Friendly Sustainability is a core value at Halstead, and all of our products are designed to have minimal impact on our environment. Halstead products are highly durable and do not need to be replaced as quickly as other products. In addition, Halstead products require less cleaning and polishing since most of our products are pre-coated and do not require strong coating and cleaning agents. Our flooring also contains low volatile organic compounds (VOCs). No trees are used for printed wood planks. Industry Leader In support of our ongoing efforts to protect the environment, Halstead International is one of the first companies in the international vinyl flooring industry to use its own recycled flooring in the production of its new Allure products. New Allure products now have no less than 15 percent recycled, known-origin content. As part of our long-standing commitment to protecting the environment, Halstead had traditionally used about 25 percent post-consumer recycled vinyl in the manufacture of Allure. However, the recycled material may have come from unknown origins. Using known-origin products in the manufacturing of new flooring is a more environmentally responsible business practice. Recycling content of known origin is better for the environment, cleaner and safer. It leaves less chance for impurities to find their way into the recycling materials, helps to relieve landfill space by diverting used product away from the landfill, and also saves on the use of precious resources.” Halstead’s goal is to lead an industry-wide move to this closed-loop, cradle-to-cradle recycling process.
