Environmentally Friendly Products by Carpet & Flooring Network

All of our green programs and innovations notwithstanding, we must produce environmentally friendly
products for our efforts to be meaningful to consumers. Of course, the most important consideration in
purchasing any new carpet or floor covering is the level of quality it provides. With Shaw, you can be assured that you are getting the finest floor covering available. But isn't it good to know that some products you buy are also good for the environment?

Carpet & Flooring Network offers a wide variety of environmentally friendly residential and commercial products. In carpet,
Type 6 nylon styles include the following fiber brands:

Epic™ Hardwood. 3/8" Epic uses  50% less newly harvested wood than  conventional 3/8" thick engineered wood flooring, is made with EnviroCore™-a dense, inner core composed of wood fiber by-products created in the manufacture of other products that are otherwise burned or put into landfills, and Epic premium veneers come from managed forests.

Shaw Laminate. Shaw's laminate products are inherently good environmental choices in floor covering. Engineered to last, laminate offers a long life span that minimizes replacement. And while it simulates the upscale look of a natural product like an exotic hardwood or ceramic tile, the actual material isn't used and the natural resource preserved. Shaw laminates feature EnviroCore™ and use 98% less newly harvested wood than conventional engineered hardwood products.

 Anderson Hardwood Floors.
 A member of the Forest Stewardship Council and Harwood Forestry Fund, Anderson Hardwood Floors, Shaw's latest acquisition, follows sound environmental practices. A recent introduction, Grand Canyon, is made from 100% wood by-products and represents one of the most environmentally responsible hardwood products available.

Shaw's newTripleTouch™ Cushion is environmentally responsible. TripleTouch is made with natural oils, reducing our dependency on petroleum-based products. In addition, the backing system's primary components are made from recycled content.

Shaw Living's EcoMade™  rugs are recyclable and backed by a complete recycling program. Consumers may return used rugs to Shaw in a postage-paid rug return envelope at no charge.

Type 6 Nylon. Type 6 nylon (Nylon 6) is used in such applications as residential and commercial carpet, as well as other products. It is the only residential carpet fiber capable of being recycled back into carpet fiber repeatedly. Carpets of Type 6 nylon are recycled at Shaw's Evergreen Nylon Recycling facility in Augusta, Georgia.

Anso® Nylon  is the longest standing, continuously marketed fiber brand in the residential floorcovering industry. Anso nylon is among the best fibers available, providing exceptional performance, and built-in stain and crush resistance. Carpets of Anso nylon contain recycled content and are made from Type 6 nylon, which is recyclable into new carpet.

EverTouch® nylon products are also made from Type 6 nylon that can be recycled back into carpet fiber again and again, endlessly.

Eco Solution Q® nylon is a Type 6 nylon that has been used in commercial applications since 1995. EcoSolution Q is continuous filament fiber designed to meet the exacting criteria of the commercial market, from the aesthetic needs of the needs of the corporate office environment to the hygienic standards of health care installations.Post-end-user EcoSolution Q fiber will be recycled at Evergreen Nylon Recycling. EcoSolution Q contains a minimum of 25% recycled content and contributes to the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED (Leadership in Energy
 and Environmental Design) certification standards.

Solution Q® nylon is a Type 6 nylon also used in commercial
 applications. Solution Q does not contain recycled content but can be recycled into new fiber repeatedly.

EcoWorx® Tile. EcoWorx is also the industry's first sustainable, non-PVC tile backing system. EcoWorx actually outperforms traditional PVC backings while it is 40% lighter in weight and is considerably more durable than PVC.EcoWorx was awarded the EPA's Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, the only time the award has been given to a carpet product, and
 the Best of NeoCon award, among many other acknowledgments.

EcoWorx® Broadloom.
The introduction of fully recyclable EcoWorx Performance Broadloom brings the sustainability and proven performance of EcoWorx backing technology to the much larger broadloom market.

Because broadloom carpet occupies roughly two-thirds of the commercial market, an even greater amount of post-consumer carpet can be kept from landfills due to the recyclability of EcoWorx Performance Broadloom.
