Mohawk's Green Carpet

Mohawk® Green Carpet Brands EverSTRAND® and SmartSTrand®Mohawk Industries offers an array of "green" carpet to choose from. As you may know, when Mohawk carpet or other types of flooring are considered green it means that the flooring is considered to be eco-friendly in one or more ways. When it comes to green carpet, this includes carpet that is made of recycled content or renewable resources and/or carpet that is easily recyclable at the end of its lifecycle. Green carpet can also be used to create a healthy Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) by having lower levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) than many non-green carpets.

When it comes to Mohawk carpet, you will find a selection of green carpeting that meets these criteria. One example of Mohawk’s green carpet is their SmartStrand® carpet with Dupont™ Sorona. Mohawk’s SmartStrand® carpet is made with carpet fibers that are derived from corn sugar (a renewable resource). Another great example of Mohawk’s selection of green carpet is carpet made with their EverSTRAND® carpet fiber. EverSTRAND carpet fibers are actually made from recycled plastic bottles such as old ketchup and soda bottles.

Mohawk doesn’t stop at just producing green carpet. In order to reduce the annual load that carpet can have on our landfills, Mohawk has created the Mohawk GreenWorks center. GreenWorks is a recycling center where they can recycle all major synthetic carpets once they reach the end of their lifecycle.

I think all flooring manufacturers should open up a recycling center like Mohawk has because what happens to the people who do it themselves? Maybe the floor installers know where to properly dispose of carpet but I didn't until I researched it all over the web. Also, I still don't know whether or not I can bring it there myself or can I call Mohawk to dispose my old carpet for me? Does anyone know?

Nate, I found the phone number for Mohawks recycling carpet program. It is 877-3RE-CYCL. It is a toll free number. When you call Mohawk make sure to let them know how much carpet your a working with, location etc. They will give you a quote within a day or so and then they handle the rest. Using the Mohawk GreenWorks center is a very useful way to recycle your carpets. This program is through out North America so where ever you are they'll help you out. Hope this helps

My 30 year old wife had brain cancer two years ago. We're hoping to avoid it again, so are looking for zero VOC carpeting. (Carpet is pretty much my only option.) Will Mohawk's green carpet really do the job. Doesn't seem to be a winner.

Coming across a top research paper websites review is not as easy as finding an essay review. I guess it is because less people want to have their research papers done online; they are more sensitive and require more input. Kindly incorporate this information on your blog so as to help those who are seeking this service in particular.
