There has been a massive shift in food consumption over the last few years. Many people are riding the vegan wave and changing their lifestyle for the better. Consumers across the UK have embraced the plant-based diet when they realized animal welfare and climate change are at stake.

In fact, according to The Guardian (2018) the number of vegans in the UK sky rocketed by 350% in 2016, meaning the vegan population has increased from 150,000 to 542,000 in just under a decade.

In addition, meat-free food has shot up to 22% between 2013 – 2018, and the growth is set to continue (Source: Mintel, 2019). 

However, veganism is more than just a dietary choice. It’s also about avoiding products and materials that harm the environment.

Many products that we purchase are unnoticeably derived from animals or un-recyclable. The good news is that there are many products that are gentle on the environment, and our Eco friendly mats are one of them. You can still have a safe, clean working environment and protect the earth with these sustainable mats.

So what is our Sustainable Eco Friendly Mats made from?

Many businesses and individuals are adapting to this social change and have become more ethically aware. Our eco friendly sustainable matting is perfect for businesses wanting to follow this cultural trend. Waterhog Eco mats manufactured using 100% post-consumer recycled bottles and 15% post-consumer rubber tyres. Meaning each square foot eliminates 4.5 litres of drink bottles from going to landfills, and a 3x5ft mat will recycle an estimate of 60 bottles.

Disadvantages of Eco mats

If you operate a commercial business with high footfall, eco friendly mats are unfortunately non launderable. This ultimately leads to higher costs and potentially more cleaning products used within your premises. Which can negate any environmental savings using sustainable mats.

  • Non launderable more frequent cleaning by staff
  • Require regular replacement in busy locations
  • May also cause trip hazards with rippled edges
  • Can look grubby quickly resulting in a poor business image
