Searches for ‘sustainable home décor’ have increased by 125% in the last 12 months, indicating a clear demand for eco-friendly products as we all look for our way to contribute to helping the planet.
With this in mind, carpet and flooring retailer Tapi has announced its new flooring collection, called TreadKindly, using sustainably sourced materials and methods.
Now available to purchase, TreadKindly has been curated to be affordable, with carpet prices starting from £22.99 per m2,
Tapi has sourced carpet and underlay designed to look and feel amazing, while still withstanding the business of everyday life. The first carpets in the collection include Flow, Balance, and Rhythm, all of which are created from 100% recycled polyester, sustainably derived from reclaimed plastic bottles. The carpet backing is also made from recycled polyester.
Horizon underlay, as part of TreadKindly, is made in the UK in Yorkshire. This underlay has a low carbon footprint, is 100% recyclable, and has been created from 85% of recycled materials, giving precious resources a second lease of life. Each roll stops 150 single-use plastic bottles from going into landfill and at the end of its life, it can simply be cut up and put straight into the recycling bin, including the bag it comes in.
In the near future, the collection will also feature carpets made from sisal and wool as well as wood-based flooring and vinyl created from reclaimed and sustainable materials.
More information on the current full collection can be found in store at Kingsway West Retail Park or on the Tapi website here.
