Creating Value, Conserving Resources, Protecting the Environment


As a conscious consumer, you can make choices in your life that may impact the environment today and for years to come. Please consider choosing Stainmaster® carpet as part of a commitment to greener living.

Four Key Facts to Consider
  1. INVISTA's Stainmaster® nylon 6,6 carpets have been proven to last up to 50% longer than other carpets*, thus extending their usable life.
    Selecting products that are durable and last longer potentially leads to:


    • Less carpet going to the landfills
    • Reducing the need for premature recycling
    • INVISTA operates the first third-party certified industry program to reclaim and recycle carpet in the nation. Launched in 1991, the program reclaims post-consumer carpet in certain areas, regardless of manufacturer or fiber type, including Type 6 and Type 6,6 nylon.


      • No reclaimed carpet in the program goes to the landfill
      • Over 65 million pounds of post-consumer carpet have been reclaimed
      • Nylon fiber - whether Type 6 or Type 6,6 nylon - is recyclable back into carpet fiber or other high-value products like carpet cushions, carpet backing and other end uses. Recycling centers may not be available in all areas.

      • STAINMASTER® carpet styles that earn the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Indoor Air Quality Green Label Plus (GLP) certification have been tested by an independent certified laboratory and meet stringent criteria for low chemical emissions.
      * Results based on testing of a statistically representative sample of carpets of comparable construction, styles and colors.
