Ambition 1. Material Health

Material Health is the framework and process to ensure that a product is made from ingredients that are “safe and healthy to humans and the environment.”

For more than 20 years we have invested in material health with our EcoWorx® PVC-free carpet tile backing, the first flooring product to be Cradle to Cradle Certified®.

And it is Shaw’s goal to have 100% of products Cradle to Cradle Certified  by 2030.
