Sustainable Carpets by Mohawk
Edenside now stock Mohawk Greenworks Carpets because they offer our customers an opportunity to contribute to world sustainability.
Mohawk´s EVERSTRANDTM carpets, made using PET (polyethylene terephthalate) that is extruded from recycled plastic bottles, contain 100 percent post-consumer recycled content. Because plastic beverage bottles are made with food and drinks standard quality PET (polyethylene terephthalate) resins, the recycled product is superior to lower grades of synthetic fibers used in making other brands of carpet yarns.
PET bottles are sorted, ground into fine chips, and then cleaned. These chips are then melted and extruded into fiber and spun into carpet yarn. Mohawk control every aspect of the process and are able to provide the finest quality to meet the highest standards of performance. Every part of the plastic bottles, including the cap, the label, and the bottle are recycled. The cap and the label are used to make carpet cores around which the carpet is wrapped. These are reused over and over again, unlike cardboard cores that would typically be discarded. Only the actual bottle is used to make the PET carpet fiber with 30 plastic bottles recycled to make one square yard of Mohawk everSTRANDTM carpet. (This number accounts for an average-sized bottle of water and average carpet weight; varies based on bottle size and carpet weight.)
And for carpeting that's even more extraordinary learn about Mohawk SmartStrand with renewably sourced polymer made from corn. Even more impressive for Kids and Pet accidents, SmartStrand doesn't stain; it's easy to clean with just a little water.
