Shaw Carpet Recycling: Creating a “Cradle to Cradle” Flooring Solution

Shaw Industries considers itself a leader in environmentally friendly carpet. They are promoting “cradle to cradle” “closed-loop” cycle, allowing carpet to be recycled after their useful life.

Shaw recycles 100 million pounds of post-consumer carpet.
