Green hotel chain partners with carpet tile manufacturer

Adoba Eco-Hotels and Suites, a growing chain of environmentally responsible architecture and design, has designated Interface Hospitality carpet tile its floor covering of choice for the brand's properties.

"The flooring is the first big step toward sustainable interior design, and Interface -- known for the highest of sustainability standards -- is the ideal partner to deliver great design,” said James Henderson, CEO and president of the Adoba brand. "We encourage our property owners to source many of the decorative accessories locally, and we recommend the use of Interface carpet tile for its green construction as well as for the company's ability to recycle the carpet at the end of a product's life cycle."

The first Adoba Eco Hotel was converted in February in historic downtown Rapid City, S.D. The company is working on three other properties to open in Texas and Colorado in the near future.

Interface Hospitality is a division of Interface, the world's largest manufacturer of commercial carpet tile. The 39-year-old company has promised to eliminate any negative impact it has on the environment by the year 2020, a goal it calls “Mission Zero.”
