We Bring Eco–Friendly Carpeting To Your Home
Mohawk Provides Green Carpet Options Without Diminishing Style
As environmental concerns continue to grow, Mohawk has accepted the challenge to do our part to reduce, reuse, renew and recycle. Additionally, we aim to incorporate this mindset into our products and brands found in your household.
SmartStand® with DuPont™ and EverStrand™ fibers are two ground–breaking methods to manufacturing carpet that truly accomplish this objective.
In fact, after learning about the science behind these incredible strands, one could say a better environment is just a kernel of corn or a plastic bottle away.
SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer
SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer contains ingredients made from corn sugar. 37 percent of the carpet fiber comes from renewably sourced ingredients that replace petroleum – a limited resource. Every seven yards of SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer saves the energy equivalent of one gallon of gasoline. By choosing Eco–smart technology, you are choosing to reduce your environmental impact. Now that’s smart.
SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer reduces our environmental footprint but what about the durability, texture and stain resistance of this product? SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer offers environmental benefits with no compromises. With unbeatable built–in stain protection for all the “oops” moments, time–tested durability, incredible softness and eco–smart technology, SmartStrand® lets you focus on other things besides your carpet.
P.E.T. used to make plastic beverage bottles is a higher–grade material than used in traditional PET carpet. When those discarded bottles are recycled, they can be processed into fibers that are far superior to lower–grade synthetic fibers used in making other brands of carpet yarns. Our fiber families are responsible to the planet we all share, and Mohawk takes that responsibility very seriously. We recycle more than three billion plastic bottles each year — 14,000 every minute — turning each one into gorgeous, eco–friendly EverStrand™ carpet.
P.E.T. provides exceptional stain resistance with superb color clarity. You can trust the way they look, love the way they feel, and have complete assurance in their natural resistance to stains and spills.
