Shaw Industries bags CPSC's 'Golden Arrow' award

Tuftex, a division of Shaw Industries, was one of four California companies honored by the California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC) during the organization’s Arrow Awards ceremony held in Oakland earlier this week during the California Resource Recovery Association's 36th annual conference.

Shaw Industries was honored for the company's overall excellence in product stewardship with a Golden Arrow Award. Shaw has invested heavily in technologies that will move the industry to a fully sustainable future, designing products using materials that are safe and responsible for human health and the environment.

Central to the company's commitment to sustainability, Shaw's Tuftex products can also be recycled back into themselves. Shaw also has a competitive, sustainable energy strategy focused on maximizing efficient use of critical resources, as well as reducing their overall environmental footprint by decreasing energy, waste, and water consumption.

Armstrong Ceiling Systems, No-Toil, and Call2Recycle also received statewide recognition for excellence in system design and innovation, coalition building and product take-back.

“We are so pleased to spotlight the contributions of these businesses and organizations that are truly product-stewardship stars and creating recycling jobs in California,” said Heidi Sanborn, Executive Director of CPSC.
