True & Leigh form alliance to address 'take back' portion of ReSKU

Jun '09
True Textiles Inc, a commercial fabrics industry leader well-known for its commitment to sustainable manufacturing practices and products announced forming an alliance with Leigh Fibers to address the “take back” portion of the company's ReSKU program. ReSKU captures Terratex fabric at the end of its service life and turns it into other commercially viable products. True Textiles is committed to creating closed loop options for both process scrap and “end of first life” textile waste therefore keeping it from ending up in landfills.

The goal of ReSKU is two-fold: 1) to identify and develop high-value product opportunities for reclaimed waste and 2) to expand the infrastructure necessary to reintroduce the waste materials into the supply chain. True Textiles has successfully commercialized a 100% polyester cushion for seating as well as a panel for acoustical applications made from a blend of recycled material including waste from the company's manufacturing facilities as well as reclaimed waste.

The products have been designed to be infinitely recyclable as well. The alliance with Leigh Fibers now provides an easy resource for customers to send back Terratex fabrics that are at the end of their useful life. “This is an exciting evolution of the ReSKU program” explained Rob Harper, senior vice president of sales and marketing for True Textiles, Inc., “it allows our customers the ability to achieve their own environmental goals by keeping high value waste out of the landfill and helps True Textiles reach its sustainability goals by closing the loop on our products.”

Leigh Fibers is one of the world's leading processors of textile waste and fiber by- products. The company has multiple plants throughout North America allowing customers to ship waste to a regional collection center thus minimizing transportation costs. The reclaimed waste will be used in ReSKU products as well as other consumer products.
