How Mohawk Group Takes Design Cues from Nature
The Lichen Collection became the first floor covering to achieve Living Product Challenge Petal Certification. Lichen can be found in every color of the rainbow and grows in nearly every ecosystem on earth, thriving on bark, leaves, soil and rock. You might even call it nature’s carpet. That idea inspired Jason McLennan, founder of the Living Product Challenge, who partnered with Mohawk Group to introduce the Lichen modular plank carpet system. The Living Product Challenge is a distinctive certification program by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) that promotes a philosophy which defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in product manufacturing today. The program requires that products go beyond minimizing footprints to creating positive “handprints” on resources.

Sustainable Development Goals

The Quest for Handprints Over Footprints
At one time, the world was focused on leaving a smaller footprint on our planet; we were encouraged to change our lifestyles to take less from Mother Earth. Today companies such as Mohawk, dedicated to making business decisions rooted in corporate social responsibility, talk not just in terms of footprints but in terms of handprints — of giving back more than we take.
