Plastic Rubbish Morphs Into Fashion That’s Good for the Environment
ECO-A-WEAR(TM) BY TEIJIN
One of the unique recycled yarns that Teijin Fibers produces is ECOPET(R), which is made from recycled plastic bottles. Having been created through a one-of-a-kind process using ECOPET(R), this new fabric is called ECO-A-WEAR(TM). The company that innovated this process is N.I. Teijin Shoji, Co. Ltd., a global company that manufactures fibers, textiles and apparel.
Teijin, through ECO-A-WEAR(TM), is introducing the first environmentally-friendly polyester and wool blend fabric in the world. What makes this fabric ecologically friendly is that it is made from recycled plastic bottles and blended with wool creating a fabric that is elegant, soft to the touch and even wrinkle resistant.
Other ECO-A-WEAR(TM) products include blends with Viscose and Cotton or 100% fully recycled Polyester.
ECO-A-WEAR(TM) fabrics are produced with greener results as fabricating it does not rely solely on petroleum. Recycled polyester fiber is generated from used plastic bottles that are collected, processed into flakes then ground into pellets, and made into polyester staple fibers. These fibers can then be woven or knit into superior fabrics.
Some apparel made with ECO-A-WEAR(TM) fabrics can also be machine washed with spectacular results cutting down the need to dry clean clothing. Most dry cleaners use perchloroethylene (perc) a clear, colorless liquid that can negatively affect the atmosphere. Some of ECO-A-WEAR(TM) products eliminate the need for dry cleaning.
