CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA - Bentley Prince Street, California's largest commercial carpet manufacturer, is partnering in the Green California Schools Summit & Exposition, which is being held December 4-6 at the Pasadena Conference Center. The Green California Schools Summit & Exposition is a groundbreaking event focusing on the strategies, technologies and services that will ensure that new and existing public schools are models of sustainability and provide healthy learning environments for students.

As part of its partnership, Bentley Prince Street will donate four different carpets for a Model Green School Demonstration Building, located center stage on the exhibit floor, to showcase the applications of a range of affordable green concepts and products. Featured products will include Myth carpet tile as well as the three patterns of the ViVA LATM collection: Which Way Now in both broadloom and carpet tile as well as Feet on the Street and Linked to the Vibe in broadloom. 

"One of the most important sustainability issues facing our state and our country is greening our schools," notes Anthony Minite, president of Bentley Prince Street. "All of us in the building and education industries-whether manufacturers, suppliers or educators-need to join forces and get behind the effort to create healthy, productive and comfortable learning environments for our children."

This first-ever Green California Schools Summit & Exposition was created to provide a central resource of information, products and services to assist K-12 public schools in the state of California in implementing effective and innovative green schools and learning environments for students.
