“Milliken’s focus on natural, recycled and easily recyclable materials is part of our overall sustainability journey to improve product design, manufacturing and sourcing practices,” said Jennifer K. Harmon, vice president, Milliken Specialty Interiors.
“We look forward to working closely with the Sustainable Furnishings Council and other concerned parties to build on our proud legacy of environmental stewardship and leadership.”
Harmon continued, “Through our development of many eco-friendly products, especially Breathe by Milliken, an eco-elegant, performance fabric available in natural or manmade materials made from recycled plastic bottles, Milliken Specialty Interiors has worked closely with companies like Unifi to reduce, reuse and recycle for the betterment of our homes, our health and our world,”
The Unifi Repreve Champions of Sustainability awards celebrate Unifi's brand and textile partners that share in its commitment to sustainability and vision for a better tomorrow. They recognize companies that exemplify leadership in sustainability and have helped recycle more than 11 billion plastic bottles as a result of their use of Repreve performance fibers.
In keeping with its belief that sustainability is closely linked to health and safety, Milliken also recently announced that it has become a founding member of the Well Living Lab, a collaborative research initiative led by Delos and Mayo Clinic dedicated to studying the impacts of our indoor environments on health and wellness.
