The well known fibre's major from Japan, Toray Industries Inc. is planning to contribute in its own way to reduce environmental pollution. It is planning to recycle products which have been manufactured using Nylon-6 synthetic fibres like shopping bags, pouches and apparels.

Toray will purchase these products and convert them in to a liquid raw material at its plant to produce recycled nylon fibre. This recycled fibre will be consequently manufactured in to fabrics to make bags and pouches.

Ryohin Keikaku Co. which owns and manages the Muji Stores retail chain will purchase these bags and pouches for its retail stores. Eight items are to be made from recycled Nylon-6 fibres in the first phase, after which more items will be included. The company also proposes to increase the recovery rates gradually.

Fibre2fashion spoke to Ms.Takako Akamine, Manager in the Public Relations Department of Ryohin Keikaku Co. who said, "This project is going to start from 1st Oct 2008 nationwide in Japan. There are a total of eight recycled products which will be used by Muji stores. Two of them are regular products and six are seasonal products. The products are Japanese traditional bags, cloth wrappers, pouches of all size, rain coats etc."

Use of recycled nylon is expected to cut carbon dioxide emission by up to 70 percent, in comparison to manufacturing nylon from Benzene.

Ryohin Keikaku Co has a reputation for following environmental laws in the true spirit and believes in using as much recycled items as possible including its stationery. It has also commenced sale of fair trade products from October 2006.

Toray Industries too has CSR policy guidelines in which it has a principle of emphasizing safety, preventing accidents and environmental preservation.
