Mohawk Group Forms Partnership with Water.org
Dalton, GA, March 23, 2023-In celebration of World Water Day, Mohawk Group has officially partnered with Water.org to increase access to safe water and sanitation worldwide. A part of this new initiative, Mohawk Group will empower 75,000 people in areas experiencing scarcity and drought by providing lasting access to safe water and/or sanitation, totaling 275 million gallons by 2030. Additionally, the partnership will mobilize $2,000,000 towards household solutions for people in need.
Access to safe water improves health, protects, and saves lives, yet one out of every ten people remains deprived of this natural resource. One out of every four people lacks access to a toilet. Now in its 30th year, World Water Day celebrates water and raises awareness of the two billion people living without access to safe water. This year’s theme revolves around accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis.
Mohawk Group’s partnership with Water.org is aligned with the company’s multi-faceted water restorative for its Living Product Challenge petal certified line of flooring products. Since being better for the planet is about a holistic plan and an understanding that river health is human health, Mohawk Group balances all water on its Living Product carpet tiles by 105% for a net-positive impact on the world’s waterways.
The thoughtful utilization and conservation of water is at the heart of the company’s holistic design and manufacturing processes. For example, Mohawk Group’s Color Pulse yarn system uses a zero-water dyeing process, helping to reduce a commercial flooring project’s water impact by one cup of water per carpet tile. This ultimately saves over 5.3 million cups of water per year. Since 2017, Mohawk Group has balanced 198 million gallons of water through partnerships, product innovations and operational improvements.
