Ray Anderson, founder of Interface, the world's largest manufacturer of modular carpet, and the maker of the FLOR tiles we love so much, passed away last week. Mr. Anderson founded Interface in 1973 to produce the first free-lay carpet tiles in America, but his environmental initiatives didn't get into full gear until 1994. After reading Paul Hawken's The Ecology of Commerce, Anderson determined to make Interface "a company committed to the goal of sustainability and doing business in ways that minimize the impact on the environment."
