Karastan is the first company to carry the new Wool: Clean Air Certified label from Wools of New Zealand, signifying its products meet LEED point requirements for indoor air quality, as well as California Section 01350 and Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) standards.

“Solid scientific backing and high testing standards give the Wool: Clean Air Certified label impressive credibility that we are proud to carry on our products,” said Connie Berry, Karastan’s director marketing.

“Wool is proven to significantly reduce indoor air contaminants within seven hours of installation and to keep contaminants out of the air for 30 years,” added Elise Demboski, WONZ’s exec director North America.

Carpets and rugs containing a minimum of 50 percent wool are eligible for Wool: Clean Air certification. For more information, visit woolcleanair.com.
