Eco Friendly Carpet & Underlay
Flooring takes up more square footage than almost any other product in your home. As consumers we are become increasingly aware of our environmental impact and responsibilities. More and more people are considering the carbon footprint of their flooring choice.
Issues such as safety, renewability, embodied energy, durability, off-gassing and recyclability come up repeatedly.
Carpet is soft, comforting, stylish, warm and has excellent sound-absorbing properties. Whilst it is less resource intensive than quarrying most stone or firing ceramic tiles, it can be relatively short-lived compared to the other building materials used to construct your home.
However, carpet is making some serious advancements in sustainability, and we are proud to support them.
Until recently, most carpet has been made from non-recycled materials and has also been non-recyclable at the end of its life. So much so that millions of tons of it is buried in landfills each year.
However, breakthroughs in production have allowed manufacturers to create carpet fibres that are made from recycled lemonade and water bottles. It is a pretty green choice. Buildings in numerous public buildings have used PET carpet entrance halls and other high-traffic areas with minimal need for maintenance and excellent results. PET fibres are naturally stain-resistant and do not require the chemical treatments used on most nylon carpets, and they retain colour and resist fading from exposure to the sun or harsh cleaning.
Whilst there has been advancement in carpet production, underlay has remained a problem, until now. We are pleased to introduce the new award winning non-woven underlays from SPRINGBOND.

SPRINGBOND’s mission is to manufacture non-woven materials for underlay from recycled and regenerated fibres in line with their environmental credentials.
