British automaker Jaguar is to start using recycled materials for thier interiors. Bringing green-cachet to the luxury market, they’ve partnered with ECONYL to take advantage of their landfill and ocean-recovered materials as part of their “Destination Zero” mission.
Changes in future Jaguar and Land Rover models will include feature floor mats and trims made from ECONYL yarns produced using plastic waste. Using the ECONYL nylon process reduces emissions in production by 90 per cent compared with the material produced from oil.
