Mohawk’s Commitment to Sustainability: Circular Economy

Mohawk believes in leaving a bigger handprint than a footprint. One of the ways we stand by this guiding tenet is through contributing to a circular economy and involving our customers from start to finish. Within our product manufacturing processes, we use post-consumer materials as our raw materials, which are then transformed into beautiful flooring products. Additionally, through our carpet recycling program, ReCover, Mohawk retrieves and donates old carpeting to nonprofit organizations, diverting flooring from the landfill.
