Eco-Friendly Stain Resistant Carpet

By: Jodi Marks

Mohawk SmartStrand carpet is not only stain-resistant, it is made from 37% renewable sourced polymers derived from corn sugar. This natural resource is also eco-friendly, since it requires 30% less energy to produce than nylon carpeting. SmartStrand carpeting is available at The Home Depot.

    I purchased SmartStrand carpeting and experienced terrible fumes from it. The fumes reminded me of chlorine and sickened me. This lasted for months–I kept the windows open for many hours all day everyday. I complained to the manufacturer, but received no meaningful help. Manufacturers need to pay attention to indoor pollution from their products! I’m glad I re-carpeted only a portion of my house; I’m definitely not re-carpeting the rest.
