From the Mohawk site –
“Mohawk leads innovation in sustainable flooring with SmartStrand® carpet with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer.
In a partnership withDuPont, this carpet exclusively offers fiber made with Bio-PDO™ (the key Sorona® ingredient), which is produced from corn sugar.
By utilizing this new ingredient, 37 percent of Sorona® is being made from renewable resources. This marks the first time that a luxuriously soft carpet offers durability and stain protection, while also making less of an environmental impact.

Why is this carpet environmentally smart?

For every 3.2 square yards of SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® sold, the energy equivalent of one gallon of gasoline is saved. If only 20 percent of the residential carpet sold in the United States were made with DuPont™ Sorona®, the energy equivalent of approximately 50 million gallons of gasoline per year could be saved.

DuPont™ Sorona® plays a major role in the worldwide objective of a renewable economy and represents a new frontier in sustainability. This carpet is environmentally smart because:
The production of Sorona® polymer requires 30 percent less energy than the production of an equal amount of nylon.
Greenhouse gas emissions from the production of Sorona® are 63 percent lower than nylon manufacturing.
This energy reduction results in approximately one gallon of gasoline saved per every seven square yards of carpet.
The superior stain resistance of SmartStrand® carpet is engineered into the fiber and will never wear or wash off, meaning consumers will never need to retreat the carpet with stain protectors after steam cleaning. And this engineered-in stain resistance reaches new levels of protection, allowing tough stains such as mustard, red wine, and cherry Kool-Aid® to be removed simply with warm water and a mild detergent, or with Mohawk FloorCare™ Essentials. The fiber even resists discoloration from bleach.”
At Alexandria Carpet One, we provide our customers with thousands of square feet of this wonderfully-soft, durable carpet each month. In fact, it’s on our showroom floor with 5 different types of cushion underneath to give you a real-world idea of what it will feel like with different cushions… and how it will hold up. That’s because our showroom is extremely busy and we chose to put it to the test.
It’s performing flawlessly!
