Mohawk Makes a Wave of Change

In 2019 alone, Mohawk recycled 6.6 billion plastic bottles, enough to wrap around the earth more than 33 times. Mohawk continues to show dedication to a more sustainable future through innovative manufacturing processes, product design and strategies around positive environmental and social impact. As one of the world’s leading recyclers of plastic bottles, Mohawk has recycled more than 40 billion plastic bottles since starting their patented Continuum process, which diverts these bottles from landfills and waterways by repurposing them into fiber for residential and commercial carpet products. From partnerships to products, Mohawk is making a wave of change from Atlantic to Pacific and beyond to reduce the waste stream and ultimately make the earth a better place for all.
