Some programs that foster quality operations are not about certification labels...but about meeting goals set by the industry and oversight policymakers. The Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) is such a program...

Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) is a joint industry-government effort to increase the amount of recycling and reuse of post-consumer carpet and reduce the amount of waste carpet going to landfills. CARE was established as a result of a Memorandum of Understanding for Carpet Stewardship (MOU), a national agreement signed by members of the carpet industry, representatives of government agencies at the federal, state and local levels, and non-governmental organizations.

CARE Mission Statement: CARE's mission is to foster market based solutions for recovering value from discarded carpet to meet the goals of the negotiated outcomes.

To accomplish its mission, CARE facilitates, advises, provide resources, and serves as a forum for the many different stakeholders.

Through CARE, carpet industry members and government entities are jointly responsible for monitoring, assessing and reporting on the progress toward the national goals for carpet recover as agreed upon in the MOU.

CARE issues an annual report at the CARE Awards each year. This report will offer updated market development opportunities for recovered carpet, information on quantities managed through the various management options outlined in the negotiated outcomes goals, an assessment of successes and obstacles encountered during the reporting period, and a summary of state and federal efforts related to carpet. CARE will post the reports on their website and publicize them through other means.
