CRI forms stewardship program

"Our members are participating voluntarily as part of our government relations activities, and have committed $4.5 million for the program's initial year," CRI board Chairman Dan Frierson said in the organization's release.

CRI, through this program, will help CARE with its efforts to keep post-consumer carpet from overcrowding U.S. landfills.
