Crystal, Minnesota - US-based Cargill's polyols business and four other companies have teamed up to donate a sofa, a chair, mattress, carpet backing and underlay to a family moving into a green 'Habitat for Humanity' home, the company said recently.
The house is Habitat's first Twin Cities home to seek (green) certification from the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) programme.
"These products represent a step on the journey to a more sustainable world," said Yusuf Wazirzada, head of Cargill Biobased Polyurethanes.
Cargill is a manufacturer of a soya-based alternative for petroleum-based ingredient used in polyurethane foam. The other companies donating to the Habitat home are Healthier Choice, Lane Home Furnishings, Serta, and HOM Furniture. (RD)
