Mohawk GreenWorks™: Environmental Leadership That Works!
For years, Mohawk has been an industry leader in actively seeking innovative ways to recycle, reduce, reuse and renew. Through GreenWorks, our umbrella program for simplified management of information about green projects, we continue to develop numerous energy-saving initiatives and eco-friendly flooring options. These solutions work for everyone: our business, our industry, our neighbors, our immediate environment and our entire planet. For example:
- Several hundred million gallons of water saved by RECYCLING WASTE WATER
- OVER 680 MILLION POUNDS OF SCRAP WOOD REUSED in our laminate core
- BILLIONS OF PLASTIC BOTTLES RECYCLED every year into EverStrand® carpet
- RENEWABLE RESOURCES used in Mohawk's SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® carpet
