“We were shortlisted in the same category last year, but unfortunately just missed out, so it’s great to be able to go one better this time around.”

SpringBond is manufactured in Yorkshire by Texfelt, a world- leader in eco- engineered carpet underlays and a partner of non- profit organisation Plastic Oceans UK which addresses plastic pollution. SpringBond helps combat the millions of tonnes of
plastic entering the world’s oceans each year through the upcycling of waste plastic, utilising Texfelt’s state-of-the-art technology.
SpringBond is one of very few carpet underlays that is fully recyclable at the end of its useable life, as it can
be placed into the recycled ‘outlet’ at the customer’s place of disposal, thereby helping to reduce the volume of waste sent to landfill. SpringBond also improves household air pollution due to the absence of harmful chemicals in the manufacturing process.
Texfelt and Headlam have worked together since SpringBond’s launch earlier this year to promote SpringBond to Headlam’s extensive customer base across the industry, highlighting the product’s market-leading green and other high-performance credentials, which has led to sales reaching the one million plastic bottles saved and recycled milestone.
Headlam is committed to working as part of the overall floorcoverings industry to reduce the industry’s environmental footprint. This includes mitigating its own direct impact through energy efficiency programmes and working in partnership with manufacturers to support the manufacture and marketing of innovative and sustainable products into the marketplace.
