Pillars of Sustainability

A Stress-Reductive Approach to Design

The repetitive patterns from nature, defined as fractals, are proven to reduce stress levels by as much as 60%. Understand the science behind the design to create balanced environments for decompressing from technology overload and nurturing human experiences.

Waste Diversion as an Art

Demonstrating how Mohawk's thoughtful product design, innovation and sustainability are diverting plastic waste from landfills and waterways, “Overflow” is an interactive upcycled art installation by Basia Goszczynska. In 2019 alone, the manufacturer recycled more than 6.6 billion plastic bottles — enough to wrap around the earth at least 33 times. Through the patented Continuum process, Mohawk gives this plastic waste a new life by turning it into premium EnviroStrand PET solution-dyed polyester carpet fiber.

Living Product Challenge

As part of our commitment to believe in better, Mohawk Group has embarked on the journey of creating handprints over footprints through the Living Product Challenge. With a full suite of Living Products across carpet and hard surface, Mohawk Group is setting a higher standard to help ensure products contribute to healthy spaces, are designed to inspire and will give more back to the environment than they take through unique “handprinting” initiatives.
