Mohawk Green Carpeting (Everstrand Collection)

It's amazing that one in every four plastic bottles recycled in North America become luxuriously soft Mohawk carpet.

Mohawk continuously seeks ways to recycle, reduce, reuse and renew. As a leader in flooring innovation, they have recycled nearly three billion plastic bottles each year, and since 1999, they've recycled more than 17 billion bottles, keeping more than one billion pounds of plastic out of landfills.

Mohawk's everSTRANDâ„¢ 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 top quality PET (polyethylene terephthalate) resins as required by the US Food & Drug Administration, the recycled product is superior to lower grades of synthetic fibers used in making other brands of carpet yarns.
