Interface Inc. aims to be the first sustainable corporation, eventually becoming restorative in their relationship to the earth. They are pioneering a new way of doing business that will change the way we think of products and our relationships with manufacturers.
The key to this next industrial revolution is to make industrial processes cyclical rather than linear. Instead of buying carpets, using them and then discarding them when worn, Interface offer the opportunity to rent carpet from them. As the square tiles wear out they are individually replaced by Interface. This represents a massive improvement in efficiency, as the removed tiles are then recycled.
Interface is a leading example of ‘industrial ecology’ adopted by a major manufacture and proves that sustainability can actually increase profits as well as help the planet.
