Mohawk Commissions Sustainability Artwork for TISE Booth

Calhoun, GA, January 23, 2020-This year at The International Surface Event (TISE) in Las Vegas, Mohawk will present a feature display within the company’s booth (5803), which will highlight its sustainability efforts.

As the largest recycler of plastic bottles in North America, Mohawk has made a corporate commitment to support the work of The Ocean Cleanup. The Netherlands-based nonprofit organization is developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. 

Mohawk will be unveiling an interactive art installation by Brooklyn-based artist Basia Goszczynska to help attendees visualize the impact of plastic in the world’s landfills and waterways. Made entirely of upcycled materials and the different components that comprise Mohawk carpeting, “Overflow” will show how cutting-edge products and thoughtfully designed processes are leading the flooring industry and making a difference in reducing the waste stream. 

In 2019 alone, Mohawk recycled 6.6 billion plastic bottles, enough to wrap around the earth more than 33 times.
