The Carpet and Rug Institute Connects Green Label Plus with Origin

Green Label Plus Indoor Air Quality Testing ProgramDalton, GA – (November 27, 2017) – The Carpet and Rug Institute’s (CRI) Green Label Plus-certified (GLP) products will now be included on the Origin platform developed by Global Innovations Green Algorithms (GIGA).

“Green Label Plus is the gold standard for indoor air quality testing,” CRI President Joe Yarbrough said. “This partnership furthers the GLP brand by giving greater access to architects, designers, specifiers, and professional builders.”

CRI is committed to providing the greatest value to consumers and is continuously promoting members’ sustainability achievements. By adding Green Label Plus certifications to the Origin platform, GLP-certified products will attain greater visibility with consumers in the building industry.

The GLP-Origin collaboration will also benefit manufacturers with GLP certification by having a wider professional audience and effectively communicating product transparency.

“The GLP program continues to lead the industry and showcases the carpet industry’s
commitment to creating products that promote indoor air quality,” Yarbrough said.

Green Label Plus is a voluntary, industry testing program for carpet, adhesive, and cushion
products that establishes the highest standard for indoor air quality ever set by the carpet
industry. The Carpet and Rug Institute created the GLP program to identify carpets, adhesives,
and cushions that meet stringent criteria for low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
