Here at Winnens I like to think that we take our environmental responsibilities seriously.
We look to seek out environmentally friendly and sustainable products that will reduce our carbon footprint. For example, we source British wool carpets wherever possible.
We stock a wide range of floorings that do not contain VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) or other chemicals that may cause health and environmental issues.
Meister is an excellent example of what I mean. I personally visited their factory in Germany and was impressed not only by the quality of their workmanship and the flooring they produced but also by their firm commitment to achieving the highest environmental standards.
Take a look at Meister’s site here.
Bradford based company Texfelt manufactures non-woven materials from recycled and regenerated fibres. I particularly like their Springbond underlay which uses 85% recycled fibres and is itself recyclable after use. For more details check it out here link
Forbo is a Dutch flooring company that seeks to maintain the highest environmental standards. Their Marmoleum lino is the only CO2 neutral of its type so does not contribute to climate change and is an excellent sustainable choice.
You can check out Forbo’s excellent environmental credentials here.
So, as you can see we here at Winnens are Keen to go Green!
