Leading designer and manufacturer of floor coverings, Milliken, has joined Healthy Seas. Milliken uses our ECONYL® yarn which is made with recycled fishnets, for their carpets.

Alison Kitchingman, Director of Marketing and Design at Milliken said: “In line with our commitment to making a positive impact on workplace health, wellbeing and the environment we are delighted to now be a part of the Healthy Seas initiative. Joining enables us to demonstrate our support publically to this amazing project as well as contributing to future clean-up operations. Milliken’s journey towards sustainability is always evolving and we are proud to continually challenge ourselves not only to improve, but also to be transparent and fully accountable to all our stakeholders and communities.”

“We are extremely proud to have Milliken on board”, said Maria Giovanna Sandrini, member of the Healthy Seas Steering Committee. “Thanks to the support of partners like Milliken, the initiative has the possibility to grow and reach its goals such as raising awareness about the problem of marine litter and possible solutions.”

For many years Milliken has been using ECONYL® 100% regenerated nylon to make their carpet tiles. Milliken now offers over 500 designs and colour options made with ECONYL® fiber. In 2016 Milliken launched its own Global Annual Sustainability Report, to provide complete transparency and accountability to all its stakeholders and communities.
