Heritage of Sustainability

Growing Greener for Over 100 Years

Long before "sustainability" entered our everyday language, Milliken understood that a living enterprise and a living earth were inextricably linked.

As early as the early 1900's we were reusing packaging and textile materials in our operations and documented our first recycling policy. By the late 1900's Milliken developed a comprehensive plan to eliminate waste, increase product performance and preserve resources —  years before the first clean air and water acts and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency were formed.


Landfill Gas Program

Methane harvested from landfills in LaGrange, Georgia and Inman, South Carolina is used to replace boiler fuel at two of our manufacturing sites.
