Shaw's LifeGuard Backing Wins Edison Awards Silver

New York, NY, April 9, 2019-Shaw Floors’ LifeGuard Spill-proof backing won silver at the April 4 Edison Awards ceremony in New York City for offering unprecedented accident protection and a worry-free carpet experience.

Widely considered the “Oscars of Innovation,” the Edison Awards honored Shaw Floors’ LifeGuard Spill-proof backing in the consumer goods-home solutions category for its moisture-resistant barrier. LifeGuard Spill-proof Backing answers the need for a worry-free carpet experience. The patent-pending thermoplastic construction keeps 100% of spills and pet messes contained. 

Recognized with gold in the consumer goods-home solutions category was Day2 by Unilever. Day2 is the world’s first dry wash spray: an air-o-sol which revives clothes instantly, so they look, feel, and smell just-washed-no machine needed. Combining the latest in fabric care technology with a premium hardware solution, each bottle saves a wash-load and eases the burden on the planet.
