Home News Milliken introduces 100% recyclable architectural folders

SPARTANBURG, S.C.—Milliken has introduced its latest sustainable initiative for the global floor covering group: architectural folders made of 100% recyclable paperboard. Featuring removable carpet swatches, the folders can be discarded at any paperboard recycling area.

According to Barbara Haaksma, vice president of design and marketing, sustainability has been a core value at Milliken for the past 100 years. These architectural folders are the latest contribution to Milliken’s holistic approach to sustainability.”

Milliken partnered with Campbell Printing, which is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and located in Dalton, to design new architectural folders with the following environmentally friendly features:

•Any waste generated from making a Milliken folder—such as trimmings—is returned to Caraustar, a manufacturer of recycled paperboard and packaging, to be repurposed.

•Removable carpet samples are housed within a special cutout in each architectural folder and remain there without the use of adhesives, metal rings or plastic trays. The samples may also be returned to Milliken for recycling after use.

•Each architectural folder features a protective, biodegradeable film laminate that is safer for the environment than other types of coating alternatives.

For more information on Milliken’s new architectural folders, call 864.503.1551.
