Footfall works closely with responsible manufacturers. Milliken has been committed to improving the environment for over 100 years and its major investments to reduce, re-use and eliminate wastage have resulted in the company being officially recognised as “carbon neutral” since 2005.
Matting fabric is made from 50% post-industrial and 50% post-consumer recycled content, including discarded and salvaged fishing nets. Econyl ® is produced from a mixture which is converted back to caprolactam and then extruded to form new polyamide yarn, which is also fully recyclable at the end of its life. The process is both ecologically and economically sustainable.
Econyl ® reduces quantities of materials sent to landfill or discarded in the oceans. The recycled yarn is integrated into our dust mats which are in stock and available with express delivery. Product link: Dust Mats
