Zeftron Nylon Receives Cradle-to-Cradle Certification

 

DALTON, GA - Zeftron® nylon has been recognized by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), a third-party consultancy founded by the world renowned architect William McDonough and innovative chemist Dr. Michael Braungart, with the prestigious Cradle-to-Cradle™ Silver certification.

Zeftron nylon, a premium branded nylon 6 yarn system manufactured by Shaw Industries for external commercial carpet manufacturing customers, is a proven environmentally responsible yarn system that is 100 percent closed-loop recyclable at the end of its useful life. Backed by constant research and product innovation, all Zeftron nylon yarns come standard with a minimum 25 percent recycled content in every color.

"We are proud to announce that Zeftron nylon has achieved MBDC's Cradle-to-Cradle Silver certification, making it a commercial interiors product that demonstrates sustainability and continuous improvement," says Jay Bolus, vice president of technical operations for MBDC. "This certification lends further credibility to Zeftron nylon's environmentally-intelligent design."

MBDC's Cradle-to-Cradle certification process closely examines the use of environmentally safe and healthy materials, design for recycling, water and energy efficiency, and social responsibility strategies.

"We have always worked to make a product that leaves little or no environmental footprint," states Tim Blount, business leader for Zeftron nylon. "Every decision regarding manufacturing, product attributes, and complete life-cycle responsibility work toward this goal-from manufacturing only nylon 6 products to our simple-to-use commercial carpet recycling program, 6ix Again. We will continue to bring innovation to the marketplace as an industry leader in closed-loop manufacturing and recycling."

Zeftron nylon is committed to environmental stewardship and excels in the area of design for material reutilization. Products carrying the Cradle-to-Cradle certification are included within U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® Green Building Rating System™ and can contribute to earning LEED points for Innovation in Design.

Zeftron nylon has a 40-year legacy of providing premium solution-dyed nylon to manufacturers specializing in carpet for the commercial interiors marketplace, with unsurpassed, style, performance and recyclability all from a single source.
