Shaw Floors’ Type 6 Nylon
This is the only residential carpet capable of being recycled back into carpet fiber at Shaw’s Evergreen Nylon Recycling Facility in Augusta, Georgia. See how it works at www.shawfloors.com/Shaw-Environmental/Sustainability
Shaw Floors’ Laminate
This beautiful flooring is made with less newly harvested wood than hardwoods or other laminate products and is engineered for a long life span, reducing consumption of natural resources.
The materials come from managed forests and use 50 percent less newly harvested wood than other products. They also contain EnviroCore™, which is made of residual wood fibers recycled from other manufacturing processes.
Hunter Douglas Window Fashions
Not only do these name-brand window treatments look great, but by managing heat loss and gain through the windows (as well as controlling heat from sunlight), they reduce utility usage. Further, window treatments act as insulation, while allowing for natural solar heat and light.
