We know it takes a lot of energy to keep a carpet clean, but that energy is a fraction of the energy we use to make it.
When you have so much energy to make a carpet, it is very hard to see what is happening when carpeting is in motion.
So, for now, we are stuck with the old rules of carpeting, like the use of carpet padding on the floor, which can make a floor feel cold.
However, some of us can still be more environmentally conscious and choose to use a little more energy by choosing to cover up and reduce the amount of energy used.
But for now it is up to you to make the best choice you can for your family, friends and pets.
