The textile collection, Revenio, features fabric made entirely of recycled and ocean-bound plastic materials and an industry-leading 100% post-consumer recycled biodegradable polyester*
Today, global design manufacturer Herman Miller, Inc. (NASDAQ:MLHR) announced the introduction of a new sustainable textile collection including fabric made from all recycled and ocean-bound plastic materials and an industry-leading 100% post-consumer biodegradable polyester*. The collection, known as Revenio, focuses on using the latest sustainable textile innovations to alleviate global waste, without sacrificing aesthetics, performance, or longevity.
For every yard in the Revenio collection, 7-15 bottles of plastic are diverted from the ocean. Annually, the Revenio Collection will divert an estimated equivalent of 4.6 million or approximately 37,000 pounds of discarded plastic bottles – 1.37 million of those bottles will be collected in vulnerable coastline cities, where they will be intercepted before reaching the ocean.
"This is our most sustainable textile collection yet," said Elaine Gerbers, Director of Materials at Herman Miller. "This new collection amplifies our commitment to creating a circular economy through the use of environmentally mindful materials. By utilizing 100% recycled content and introducing ocean-bound plastic, we are diverting plastic from the landfill and our waterways and giving them new life in these beautiful new textiles. Additionally, our new biodegradable textile reduces the environmental impact at the end of a product's life."
