Renu: a new eco-friendly underlay

Jun 10, 2021

We are really excited to have been chosen as a stockist of a new, eco-friendly underlay.

As many of our customers are keen to do their bit for the environment, we felt it was important to seek out the best carpets and underlays which tick all the eco-friendly boxes. 

The Renu underlay is by Tredaire, an established manufacturer, and is made from 98% recycled materials and is itself 100% recyclable.   It is made in the UK which ensures the impact of delivering to stockists is minimised, keeping transport emissions low. 

The story of Renu

Here is a short YouTube video which tells the story of Renu :

What are the benefits of Renu?

The foam is made from recycled soft furnishings and it is then backed with recycled, unbleached paper.  Then a film is applied to the top layer which is 100% recyclable and made from sugar cane which is responsibly sourced and carbon negative.

Renu underlay has a high 2.2 tog rating which delivers on energy-saving within the home by insulating the floor, to ensure as much heat as possible is retained in the room.  It has a high decibel rating too, 38dB, which minimises noise and keeps your home calm and tranquil.

Renu underlay is 9mm thick and is suitable for every room in the house.  Its high-density foam is designed to protect your carpet from wear and prolong its life.

When your Renu underlay reaches the end of its life then Tredaire will happily take it back and recycle it to make even more underlay, saving landfill sites from being filled with unnecessary waste.

In a survey of UK homeowners, the makers of Renu underlay found that 88% would choose a carpet which is made of recycled materials and recyclable itself.
