cotone biologico riciclato

Both our planet and humanity have benefits from recycled cotton

The yarn produced with recycled cotton was born from the need to reduce pollution and as a logical response to the need to produce in a sustainable way to preserve the resources of the world in which we live. The trend in recent years is to recover as much as possible any waste generated along the supply chain, unsold collections, garments that have reached the end of their life cycle, so that they can fill again the supply chain of new products, albeit with some qualitative limitations to which the technology may eventually find appropriate solutions in the short term.






Recycled vs. Regenerated: what is the difference?

R&BIO yarns are produced with 100% pre-consumer cotton waste that is generated during the preliminary steps of the supply chain: because of this, the R&BIO yarns give guarantees of blend, dyeing and relatively stable technical specifications, because it can also be mixed with virgin cotton fibers. Common regenerated yarns are instead obtained from pre-consumer waste collected during all the steps of the transformation from the virgin fiber to the finished product, where in most cases it has already been necessary to mix the different fibers (cotton, linen, viscose, polyester, etc..) and from post- consumer waste as used or unsold garments: these wastes are thus cut into small parts to be then frayed and finally used for the production of yarns generally already dyed (guaranteed only for batches), without guarantee of composition and with low technical characteristics: often, since frayed fibers are very short and stressed by intensive processes of regeneration, it is necessary to add at least a 10% of polyester blend to increase the performance in terms of strength.

Benefits of Recycled cotton for the planet

33% of the world's garments is made of cotton fibers. When you consider that about 2,700 liters of water are used to produce a single T-shirt, it is intuitive to understand how encouraging the use of recycled fibers can help to reduce this enormous use of resources. The result of the planet's excessive use of resources is the desertification of some parts of the world.


Recycled cotton means textile waste reduction

By using and choosing recycled cotton for the manufacturing of garments, household textiles and other fabrics, it is possible to reduce the waste that is taken to landfills around the world every day. The use of recycled cotton is the most consistent eco-friendly policy sustainable in the long term.
