Mohawk EverStrand Carpet Selected as Red Carpet for Daytime Emmys

Mohawk EverStrand carpet made with PET will finally get the spotlight it deserves as this carpeting made from recycled plastic bottles has been selected as the official red carpet of the Daytime Emmy awards. EverStrand carpet is made with PET (polyethylene terephthalate) fiber, which comes from 100 percent post–consumer recycled plastic bottles. The producers of the Daytime Emmy Awards chose Mohawk’s EverStrand carpet as a green and eco–friendly flooring option to help with the environmentally sound production of the awards ceremony.

Dalton, GA (August 28, 2009)– When the stars of daytime television stroll down the red carpet at the 36th Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards this weekend, they’ll be making a strong green statement.

Mohawk Industries

Mohawk's EverStrand™ carpet made from recycled plastic bottles was selected as the famed "red carpet" for the Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony. The awards ceremony, which will be held at the historic Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles, will air Sunday, August 30, at 8pm on the CW Network.

The producers chose Mohawk EverStrand as part of their effort to stage an environmentally sound production. The Emmys will use a variety of products and practices to show what can be done to protect and improve the environment, including recycling, using hybrid vehicles, reducing lighting to save energy, and other tactics. The Emmy production is carefully planned to be carbon neutral.

Mohawk's EverStrand fiber is a polyester produced entirely from recycled soft drink and water bottles. One out of every four bottles recycled in North America becomes Mohawk carpet. Mohawk recycles more than three billion bottles every year, making the company the largest recycler of plastic bottles in the country.

Because the US Food & Drug Administration requires top quality PET (polyethylene terephthalate) for beverage bottles, the recycled product offers superior performance characteristics over many fibers. On average, 30 plastic bottles are recycled to make one square yard of Mohawk EverStrand carpet.

Mohawk's own ongoing environmental effort, Mohawk GreenWorks, is an umbrella program that places all green projects under a single platform for management and information. Mohawk GreenWorks communicates the effort that goes into the company's scores of environmental practices. Mohawk GreenWorks covers the spectrum of environmental practices–the "5 Rs"–recycle, renew, reuse, recover, and reduce.

Mohawk’s environmental efforts have been cited by government agencies as a model for other industries to follow. Mohawk currently diverts more than three billion pounds of pre– and post–consumer waste from landfills every year. More than 500 Mohawk products–carpet, carpet tiles, cushion, laminates, and ceramic tile–contain recycled materials. These materials come from manufacturing, discarded tires, roofing, old wood furniture, soft drink bottles, and various other sources.

I appreciate your post. I also wrote that SMS advertising provides a cost effective method of targeting promotions to specific customer profiles. You might want to remind customers of specific events or promotions, but for whatever reasons, SMS allows you to pass information directly to the right customer at very affordable prices and fast delivery.

Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
