Carpet cushioning is one of those things you don't see, but you sure do feel. It only makes sense that it be made from recycled content, and what better content to use than athletic shoes!
StepAhead Carpet Cushion is made with Nike Grind.
* The process of transforming Nike Grind scrap into the StepAhead products helps keeps 67,000 tons of air pollutants from being released - saving more than 675 million gallons of water.
* There is the equivalent of three shoes in every square foot of StepAhead and approximately four million pounds of Nike Grind will be used each year to produce StepAhead.
* Not only is this material better for the environment, it's better for your carpet - each 30-square-yard roll is supported by a lifetime warranty.
