Green Up Your Outdoor Decor ~ Mohawk Home ~ Pamper The Earth Collection 2012 ~ Giveaway


As my family begins preparing for another long awaited outdoor season, we are looking for new areas to make a green difference.   One of the first outdoor areas I inspect is our home entrance.  So important in creating a positive, first impression and in welcoming our guests, simple, green changes can make a world of difference.



After a long season of snow, pet paws and foot traffic, a new doormat made of recycled rubber is a perfect way to freshen the look at our front door while reducing our family's eco footprint at the same time!   From a name that I already associate with variety and quality, choosing an affordable, recycled rubber doormat from Mohawk is an easy choice.

Mohawk Recycled Rubber
You can find our recycled products at all the largest retailers.  In 2009m we diverted over 18 million pounds of rubber tires, one of the largest and most hazardous types of post-consumer waste, from landfills and brought them to homes as designer doormats.  Put another way, that represents enough tires to outfit 225,000 cars.  The mat face or images area is also stamped with 100% recycled flocking. 
Choosing green, recycled home decor products doesn't mean you have to sacrifice on style!  Mohawk greenworks offers hundreds of designs in outdoor mats in a wide range of sizes and colors.
With an eco-friendly style to suit any home's decor, make a green statement about your family's commitment to support sustainable practices and products, right from your home's entrance!

To grace the entrance to my home, I found the perfect recycled Mohawk accent piece online at Kohl's!  An elegant design with colors to compliment the brick facade and lattice accents, this extra large mat was a perfect fit for my needs!
Finding and ordering your favorite Mohawk Home accent piece is easy from any of the Mohawk Home retail partners.  With familiar and trusted retailers like Home Depot, Lowe's, Sears, Kohl's and more, you'll find just right accents both online and in store!  Attractive, durable, affordable and green ~ a winning home decor combination!

I also learned that discarded tires can produce dangerous, toxic fires in dumps and old tires retain
water where disease-spreading insects thrive.

We already try very hard to live as green as possible. Our newest efforts this year will be to create even more natural gardens on our property made only out of natural rocks that were already on the property for pathways and retaining walls. We also incorporate and transplant the natural wildflowers already here like the wild irises and brown eyed Susans and then use the dead trees we clear to make the natural mulch for around the garden beds. Lots of hard work, but very beautifying and almost no cost.
