Milliken Commits to Cradle to Cradle Design™ Optimization with Newly Certified Carpet Tiles

Interior designers can add a new carpet tile to their collection that does more good with the latest Cradle to Cradle Certified™ product coming from Milliken & Company, a global manufacturer with expertise in specialty chemicals, floor covering, and performance and protective textiles. MBDC is proud to have worked closely with the Milliken team for years in their pursuit of achieving Silver level certification awarded by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.

“We have chosen to make a strong commitment to Cradle to Cradle Certification because of its well-known status as a recognized and trusted standard across the globe,” said Phillip Ivey, Floor Covering Strategic Sustainability Leader at Milliken. “An effective standard should create incentives to make healthier products. C2C does exactly that.”

Milliken offers floor coverings designed to be colorful, customizable, long-lasting, soft – and of course, sustainably made. Its modular carpet tiles scored high on the Material Reutilization category with Gold level achievement, and this recognition is well earned given its pre-consumer recycled content and its diversion of over 99% of its waste away from landfills. Through the company’s work with MBDC and in pursuit of Cradle to Cradle certification, Milliken continues on its path to continual improvement and optimization.
