nora Launches Sample Take-Back Program

June 22, 2009

LAWRENCE, MA—nora systems Inc., manufacturer of nora® rubber flooring, recently announced the launch of a Sample Take-Back Program designed to help nora customers dispose of flooring samples they no longer need in a way that adheres to environmentally responsible practices.

The new program makes it easy for architects, designers and other nora customers to return their rubber flooring samples and binders of samples using prepaid U.S. postage labels that can be completed and printed from the nora Web site. Customers who want to take advantage of the program should pack their samples in an envelope or box, affix the label to the package and give it to a post office or a postal carrier.

“It’s really that easy,” says Amy Bostock, manager of marketing and creative services at nora. “We created the program to provide our customers with a simple, sustainable alternative to simply throwing away their samples.

“However, their first option should always be to try and repurpose the materials locally, donating them to a school or other organization that might be able to use them. A local recycling program is another viable option that makes good, green sense.”

A new Sample Take-Back button on nora’s home page ( links customers to the Sample Take-Back page, where additional information is available and instructions are provided for creating a return label.
