Mohawk also has this to say about it's new greenworks program:
"We believe environmental stewardship and sustainable initiatives makes good business sense.
"Mohawk seeks ways to reduce, recycle, reuse and renew. Doing the right thing takes effort and we're doing what's best for the environmesnt, our business, our industry and for all of us."

Other interesting facts about Mohawk's greenworks include:
More than 500 Mohawk products - from our carpets, carpet tiles and cushion, to our laminates and ceramic tiles - contain recycled materials.
Mohawk can recycle any kind of latex-backed carpet regardless of what fiber is used - polyester, polypropylene, PTT, Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6.
Available in GREEN no matter the color. One out of four recycled plastic bottles in North America transforms into components that make Mohawk EverStrand™ residential carpeting. - That's almost THREE BILLION bottles a year.
All laminate boards made in the U.S. contain 75% pre-consumer recycled content. Mohawk Laminate uses only renewable, fast-growing southern pine. Six times more trees are planted than harvested by our suppliers. Wood waste from manufacturing is used as a bio-mass fuel for process heating.
100% of water from the manufacturing process at most Mohawk ceramic tile facilities is reused and never discharged as waste.
Mohawk diverts more than 1.75 billion pounds of pre-consumer and post-consumer waste from landfills each year - and that number grows annually.
From field to floor. The future is in renewable fiber technologies. SmartStrand®
