FindAnyFloor.comĀ® Reduces Its Carbon Footprint

Word Count: 417 Permalink

LAS VEGAS, NV – Damien Patton, founder and CEO of FindAnyFloor.com® – the largest flooring information resource on the Internet – today announced that the company would be offsetting its carbon emissions. Patton, who is a staunch advocate of environmental responsibility, was eager to calculate his staff's work–related carbon emissions. This led him to Carbonfund.org's Carbon Free Program.

"It just seemed like the logical, responsible thing to do," said Patton, who is intent on making his company as green as possible. "We provide a great deal of green flooring information and are strict recyclers. But that still left the issue of carbon emissions created driving to and from work."

In addition to FindAnyFloor.com, Patton's company will soon launch Green.FindAnyFloor.com™ and, a little further down the track, MoveIntoGreen.com, which will provide green info across the building industry.

"Our concern is to not only provide green information but also to practice what we preach," added Patton. "So we want to play our part in reducing global carbon dioxide emissions through Carbonfund.org."

FindAnyFloor.com's emissions offset purchase will go toward supporting reforestation projects in the U.S. and abroad.
