Carpet Closeouts is a green carpet and flooring store in Batavia committed to preserving the environment. You don’t have to sacrifice quality or affordability for your eco-friendly rug; Carpet Closeouts features an extensive collection of soft, durable, stain-resistant carpets at up to 50% less than the retail price!
Top manufacturers like Mohawk and Shaw provide green carpet options using state-of-the-art materials, including DuPont Sorona and PET Polyester. Mohawk’s Smart Strand Collection exhibits a smart, stylish appearance as well as long-lasting resilience in any setting. These Smart Strand carpets are made from DuPont Sorona, a corn-based polymer. Containing 20%-37% renewable material from non-food biomass, this polymer reduces fossil fuel use, but does not affect performance of Smart Strand carpets.
DuPont Sorona is a bit different from PET Polyester. Eco-smart carpets use PET Polyester in a continuous filament weave, making it stronger, softer and more resistant to heat and abrasion. PET Polyester is made from recycled plastics, repurposing up to 10 billion plastic bottles each year into exquisite flooring selections. This renewably sourced polymer also uses 30% less energy and reduces CO2 emissions by 63% compared to traditional nylon fibers.
Although different, DuPont Sorona and PET Polyester both help the environment and are green. Check out the Smart Strand Challenge to see how this modern green carpet holds up to spills, pets, kids and high traffic.
