Georgia Public Service Commission Recognizes Shaw Industries with Energy Matters Award in the “Best Sustainability by a Manufacturing Company” category

On Thursday, July 7, Georgia Public Service Commission Vice Chairman Tim Echols presented Shaw Industries with an Energy Matters Award in the “Best Sustainability by a Manufacturing Company” category.

Shaw is being recognized for its long-standing commitment to sustainability – including recycling carpet and using recycled content (carpet, plastic bottles and more) in its manufacturing processes. Since 2006, the company has reclaimed almost 1 billion pounds of carpet, including its EcoWorx® backed carpet tile. 

EcoWorx was one of the first products in the world to be Cradle to Cradle Certified®, and in 2021 became the first product in the world to achieve Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver under the new, more rigorous version 4 of the standard. Additionally in 2021, Shaw Industries introduced a revolutionary new flooring platform constructed with 30 percent post-consumer recycled bottles, taking waste bottles and recycling them into a beautifully designed, highly durable flooring. Each square yard of this product, known as ReWorxTM, contains an average of 61 post-consumer plastic bottles and is recyclable back into itself.
