Vancouver's Olympic graphics to be recycled as flooring

2010_winter_olympics_logosvgpnNow that the Vancouver Olympics are just a wonderful memory, lots of materials are left to be dealt with.

Enter Mannington Commercial who plans to take the almost 200,000 square feet of graphic wraps, made by 3M Canada, that were used for advertising during the 2010 Winter Games and will turn them into commercial flooring. These wraps were wrapped on vehicles and other types of displays

Mannington will utilize these wraps for their Premium Tile line, which also includes scrap drywall and VCT removed from renovation sites.

Mannington officials said the Premium Tile line is popular for educational, healthcare and retail uses.

Once again, a little corporate ingenuity and commitment to sustainability will turn what would have been trashed into something useful.
