How underlay is helping to reduce the use of plastic

Reducing the use of plastic and recycling plastic is of course a subject that is increasingly discussed. It is an issue that affects all of us and in the carpet and flooring industry we are doing our bit too…

Last month I attended the UK’s largest carpet and flooring exhibition in Harrogate. It is also a good opportunity to meet with our UK suppliers and find out about the latest trends and products coming onto the market.

Using good quality underlay fitted by a professional is crucial to ensuring that carpet will look great and provide thermal efficiency and comfort. I was therefore interested to see at the exhibition a new eco product launched by Texfelt: Spring Bond.

Spring Bond make products suitable for the flooring, furniture and bedding markets. What is ingenious is that they use fibres which have already been recycled from a number of sources including PET bottles and other single use plastics. Their underlay is made from 85% recycled fibres – and is recyclable after use….as well as being comfy and warm underfoot too!

Another eco product using a high level of recycled materials are mats from Bruce Starke.  These attractive flocked surface designs have a rubber base made from recycled car tyres.

At the exhibition several manufacturers launched their own new products and I took the opportunity to buy some stock specials, both wool and man-made at advantageous prices. We will be sharing details of these soon and they will also be available at our Show Room.
