"Carpet One Floor & Home is doing a great job of demonstrating what it means to be a responsible company," says Dr. Barbara Whylie, CEO, Canadian Cancer Society. "Ongoing support keeps our momentum and efforts moving forward so we can continue to educate women about breast cancer, and with this momentum, we will continue the search for a cure."

Extremely durable, stain-and water-resistant, and machine-washable, Carpet One Floor & Home's 2008 spring-and-summer-themed mats make perfect gifts.
