Firm rolls out its eco credentials to COP26
THE COP26 international environmental conference has given a Valley firm the opportunity to showcase one of its star products.
Interfloor, which manufactures carpet underlay and flooring accessories, has supplied 286 rolls of its first fully sustainable and ethically produced underlay renu, for the conference venue.
And the firm has committed not only to supply the carpet underlay, but to recycle it when world leaders have left Glasgow next week.
The underlay will be returned to the site on Broadway, Haslingden, where it will be re-granulated and made into new rolls of renu.
CEO John Cooper said: “We are all rightly concerned about how we treat our planet, and we are proud to be supplying COP26 with a product that meets not only the values of the conference but our own ideals too.
“We were delighted that it has been recognised by COP26 in striving for this full circle of ‘no waste’.”
Part of Interfloor’s Tredaire family, renu is made from 98 per cent recycled materials, using ethically sourced and genuinely recycled materials, which means keeping waste from landfill, and is 100pc recyclable itself. The main body of the “game changing” underlay is made of foam reclaimed from recycled soft furnishings.
The backing is made from 100pc recycled and unbleached paper and water-based inks are used for printing.
