Why use recycled nylon?
Our appetite to create and buy new products is infinite, but the planet’s resources are not. This drives our need to have reusable and sustainable materials to meet our demand for new products and a help us manage a better, cleaner, safer environment for ourselves and nature.
What is ECONYL®?
ECONYL® regenerated nylon is a product, made from 100% waste, that is infinitely recyclable.
Nylon waste, is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon. It’s exactly the same as brand new nylon and can be recycled, recreated and reused again and again.
That means you can create new products and buy new products without having to use new resources.
Still not convinced?
Microplastics are minute plastic particles typically less than 5mm in size. They are a direct result of plastic-based materials, such as textiles used in the fishing and agricultural industries and general waste. Microplastics are a huge concern to human and marine life as well as the natural environment because of just how widespread their presence is. They are in our oceans, in the air, in the rain, and most worryingly, inside us and other living creatures as we unknowingly ingest them.
Products ahead of the curve?
As we become more aware of the damage we are doing to nature we look to make changes wherever we can to help. The British Government is already putting plans in place to ban single use plastics in many forms. As individuals we can all make small changes that may encourage the big suppliers and producers to take these issues seriously.
And as manufacturers we can, and will, play our part by switching to these sustainable materials wherever possible. ECONYL® is a perfect example of going the extra mile to make a huge difference to the environment. We do this not only to stop adding to the overwhelming levels of polution that is already out there, but to make an active impact on reducing this existing problem.
