Home News Shaw commercial brands Greenhealth approved

GreenhealthReston, Va.—Practice Greenhealth named Shaw Industries’ commercial brands, Patcraft and Shaw Contract, as its latest Greenhealth approved suppliers.

According to the company, its 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 health care 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 health care providers’ hands,” said Kelley Fain, executive vice president, Shaw Industries commercial division. “We are excited that this program has been developed to validate our 20-plus year commitment to material health and to offer these products to the market with the GA seal. This will help health care purchasers find and procure sustainable products that promote the wellbeing and safety of their patients, staff and the environment.”

Shaw Industries products with the GA 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,” said Paul Bogart, executive director, Practice Greenhealth. “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.”

Providers that are interested in finding out what products carry the GA seal can check the Greenhealth website and sign up for regular updates as products are approved for the seal.
