Welcome to our website.  As J+J Flooring Group’s Director of Sustainability I’m glad you have joined us here.  Over the course of time we want to let you know what’s going on around here in the world of things sustainable.  But to kick things off I thought you might like to hear a little about why I’m passionate about this role.  Here’s a short story….

Growing up I loved the Gulf of Mexico.  I loved to fish and swim and just be on the water.  One day when I was about 6 years old I learned a life lesson.  Do you recall some of your “life lessons”?  My lesson involved a Coke can.  You see, when I was finished drinking my Coke, without a second thought, I just tossed the can in the air over the side of the boat.  The rest of the story is a bit of a blur for me.   All I remember next, without a word spoken, was that I was ‘flying’ and headed in the direction of the still airborne Coke can.  My dad had not taken too kindly to my littering.  As you might imagine, I got the picture quickly, picked up the can and was rapidly back onboard.  I never littered again.  So I like to say “my dad’s toss helped make me appreciate the environment.”  It is that “life lesson” I bring to J+J.  I’m proud to be here and I’m glad you’re here as well.  I look forward to more blogging in the time to come.  Come back soon.  The Sustainability Guy.
