We are endlessly impressed by the willingness and commitment of manufacturers to do the right thing when shown better ways or products.
Graham is the technical manager of a carpet manufacturer, who when informed of an unhealthy chemical in their product during assessment, jumped right in and within weeks did the research and changed out the problem ingredient for a safe alternative. Graham ended up with a better product and a GreenTag Gold rating and his customers received healthy carpet.
