Shaw Industries Receives Sustainability Seal of Approval

Shaw Industries’ commercial brands, Shaw Contract and Patcraft, are Practice Greenhealth’s latest approved suppliers.

Their resilient flooring and carpeting product lines are the first flooring solutions to obtain the Greenhealth Approved seal. The seal indicates that products meet specific sustainability criteria and enables healthcare providers to easily identify environmentally preferred products without having to conduct their own ingredient verification.

“We worked closely with the Greenhealth Approved team to qualify these products to take the time-consuming product review process out of healthcare providers’ hands,” says Kelley Fain, executive vice-president of Shaw Industries’ commercial division. “This will help healthcare purchasers find and procure sustainable products that promote the well-being and safety of their patients, staff and the environment.”

Shaw Industries products with the Greenhealth Approved seal include bio-based polyurethane resilient flooring and EcoWorx NSF-140 platinum carpet tile styles sold under the Shaw Contract and Patcraft brands.

“Greenhealth Approved removes obstacles that previously made purchasing sustainable products difficult,” says Practice Greenhealth’s executive director, Paul Bogart. “Normally, each healthcare provider conducts their own product review, often without extensive experience in chemistry and sustainability. We are helping streamline and centralize this approach, working closely with each supplier and completing a detailed product review using trusted criteria.”

Practice Greenhealth is the leading membership and networking organization for sustainable healthcare, delivering environmental solutions to more than 1,400 hospitals and health systems in the U.S.
