Longstanding partners Greenstream Flooring CIC and Interface are formalizing their intention to work closely together by signing a contract that puts reuse at the heart of Interface’s ReEntry system from July 2018

In an exciting step forward for reuse and the circular economy, Greenstream Flooring CIC and Interface are strengthening their relationship through a formal agreement to work together to guarantee carpet tiles, otherwise discarded, will be primarily reused and secondary recycled from Interface’s ReEntry scheme with zero landfill via Greenstream’s carpet tile reuse operations in Porth, South Wales.

As a social enterprise, this contract will not only have a really positive impact on the environment but will also maximise our social impact by helping us to create more training and ultimately more employment opportunities.’ said founder and Managing Director of Greenstream today.  ‘We are delighted to have such a renowned corporate partner make a formal commitment to use our reuse services and we look forward to developing our joint efforts to maximize reuse with Interface in the future.’ she added.

Greenstream Flooring CIC has been involved in the reuse of carpet tiles and sales of new and reused flooring for ten years. It has diverted 250,000 metres squares of otherwise discarded carpet tiles via it’s reuse operation.  Greenstream has provided employment and volunteering opportunities for people with disabilities and furthest from the workplace in it’s warehouse.  It also supports households on low income via it’s affordable flooring scheme and free events.  Greenstream also supplies and fits new and reused flooring as part of a circular office fit out arm that aims to minimise waste and maximise reuse in office fit-outs.

‘I am delighted that we have completed the signing of our Partnering Agreement with Greenstream’ said Craig Frost, UK Head of Sales today. ‘This officially launches our circular economy collaboration efforts on an ongoing basis, something both Greenstream and Interface have been working hard towards.  I’m personally very excited and passionate about the opportunity that this represents for our respective organisations, and I am looking forward to working alongside Greenstream to deliver the great untapped potential for positive Social and Environmental impact we both see in the UK’
