Shaw Industries’ Anso nylon has earned Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) third-party certification for containing 25 percent post-consumer recycled content. Anso nylon is Shaw’s premium carpet and rug fiber brand.
“Shaw is offering a unique product feature and advantage for our customers by certifying its post-consumer recycled content at a 25 percent level in our Anso nylon,” said Rick Ramirez, Shaw’s vp sustainability. “This step forward further demonstrates our commitment to the cradle to cradle philosophy and credible third-party verification of our products’ sustainability and environmental attributes.”
Anso nylon is also cradle-to-cradle recyclable through the company’s Evergreen Nylon Recycling facility in Augusta, Ga. Anso nylon recently received Cradle-to-Cradle Silver certification from McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC).
