Leading carpet tile manufacturer Interface joins Healthy Seas
Interface officially announced its participation in Healthy Seas, joining us in the journey from waste to wear! Interface is a global leader in the design and production of carpet tiles.
Commenting on its participation, Interface VP & Chief Innovations Officer Nigel Stansfield said “Interface is delighted to be involved in the Healthy Seas initiative as it works to help tackle the growing environmental problem of marine debris on an industry-wide scale.
We are strong advocates of scavenging waste from one industry for use in another, and see this as a natural extension of the work we are already doing within our own business to convert waste into valuable raw materials for new products. We are proud to be doing something that we feel strongly about for the good of the wider textiles industry and, crucially, for the good of the environment.”
It was one of the first companies to publicly commit to sustainability, when it made a pledge in the mid-nineties to eliminate its impact on the environment by 2020. Known as Mission Zero®, it influences every aspect of the business and inspires the company to continually push the boundaries in order to achieve its goal.
Interface is now more than half way to reaching Mission Zero and has been widely recognised for its achievements to date. Its products have also achieved several awards specifically for design and innovation, the most recent being The Athenaeum Good Design Award for Fotosfera.
Healthy Seas is very grateful to have Interface on board as an associate partner.
