Shaw Industries Group announced that its ReWorx flooring is a 2023 Edison Award winning product.
Now in its 36th year, The Edison Awards is an annual competition honoring excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design, and innovation. ReWorx was selected from almost 400 nominations. During the awards ceremony on April 20, ReWorx will be recognized as either a gold, silver or bronze winner in the post-consumer recycled material category.
ReWorx hybrid flooring is made with 100 percent PET fiber, including a minimum of 20 post-consumer plastic bottles per 12” x 48” plank. With the durability of a hard surface and the comfort of a soft surface, it is designed to meet the performance expectations of a variety of end-use applications.
Available via all of Shaw’s commercial brands, Patcraft, Philadelphia Commercial and Shaw Contract, ReWorx is Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze (v3.1) having been assessed for material health, product circularity, clean air and climate protection, water and soil stewardship and social fairness. And as part of Shaw’s Environmental Guarantee, the product can be picked up at no charge to the customer at the end of its life on the floor through the re[TURN]® Reclamation Program to be recycled into the next generation of ReWorx flooring.
"This product introduction was an incredible cross-collaboration of teams throughout our company, and through feedback and insights gained directly from customers," said Shaw Vice President of Global Sustainability and Innovation Kellie Ballew. "The end result is a brand-new product platform that is verified as safe for people and the environment. We are helping to divert landfill waste both by use of post-consumer plastic and through our reclamation of ReWorx at the end of its life on the floor. It’s an innovation for the planet and its people.”
