Partnership with Healthy Seas
As a further commitment to the Closed Loop Economy, Milliken has partnered with ‘Healthy Seas, a Journey from Waste to Wear’. Healthy Seas aims to recover discarded fishing nets from the seas and to regenerate them into high-quality ECONYL®
yarn, which is subsequently turned into brand-new products such as Milliken carpet.
Milliken now offers over 1000 design options using Econyl® 100% regenerated nylon, featuring 50% post-industrial and 50% post-consumer recycled content. Collections featuring Econyl include; Clerkenwell, Colour Compositions, Consequence
2.0, Dissident 2.0, Fine Detail, Fractals, Glazed Clay, Light Trails, Naturally Drawn, Out of the Shadows, Poise, Tracing Landscapes, Unexpected Purpose and Urban Collective.
Recycled backing materials
Milliken’s innovative cushion backing includes 90% recycled polyurethane, providing a light weight backing solution that is not only environmentally sound but also enhances performance in use. Many Milliken products also
contain primary backing materials sourced from recycled materials such as PET bottles.
