Here's some of what Miss Boykoff had to say:
When we think about carpet, most of us think ‘wool’ right? But you know what? There are so many other fiber types available and they make for really beautiful and eco-friendly rugs. Now that you know you have other options, let me tell you a bit about them, courtesy of Livingston & Associates. They sell gorgeous ecoFiber rugs that are totally custom – pattern, color, size and type & number of fibers, whatever you’d like. In addition to being green, all of their products are GoodWeave certified, meaning that inspectors visit carpet mills to make sure that no illegal child labor is used. And this group is strict! If a mill neglects that policy, the child is not only sent to a good school courtesy of GoodWeave, the mill looses its certification and has to work to get it back. Now that’s what I call fair-trade!
