ECONYL®: a step towards a more sustainable future

12 Oct, 2023

At Flooring Xtra we are committed to a sustainable future. As part of our ongoing work towards sustainability, we are proud to support our suppliers who produce flooring product options with ECONYL® nylon with the aim to minimise their environmental impact.

So what exactly is ECONYL®?

ECONYL® is a revolutionary fibre that is transforming the way we look at flooring materials. It's not just a carpet; it's a commitment to the environment. ECONYL® is a regenerated nylon made from recycled waste, such as abandoned fishing nets, fabric scraps, and industrial plastic waste. By transforming discarded materials into a high-quality and durable fibre, ECONYL® helps reduce environmental impact and promote a circular economy.

For every 10,000 tonnes of ECONYL® raw material produced, 70,000 barrels of crude oil are saved, and 65,100 tonnes of CO2 emissions are avoided. ECONYL® nylon fibre has the potential to be recycled infinitely without ever losing its quality, making this an excellent long term carpet choice for your forever home.

Choosing a carpet range that is produced more sustainably does not mean compromising on style. The range of carpets available at Flooring Xtra that are produced using ECONYL® fibre are considered premium carpets that offer a wide array of design options to suit every style of home. Best of all, it’s a choice that you can feel good about knowing you are supporting a circular economy by keeping products that have reached their end of life, out of landfill.


Our Partnership with Suppliers:

Flooring Xtra is proud to collaborate with suppliers such as Victoria Carpets and Jacobsen who share our commitment to sustainability. By choosing suppliers and product ranges that utilise the latest technologies used to produce sustainable products such as ECONYL® fibre, we are not only offering our customers a beautiful and durable flooring solution but also contributing to the reduction of plastic waste and the preservation of marine ecosystems.

Reducing Environmental Footprint:

ECONYL® not only repurposes waste but also requires fewer resources compared to traditional nylon production. This translates into a reduced demand for raw materials, energy, and water, aligning with our vision for a more sustainable and eco-friendly flooring industry. Choosing to purchase a carpet made from ECONYL® fibre means you are actively working towards reducing the environmental footprint associated with carpet production.
