Bekaert presents 'Second Life' using New Life yarn

Apr '10
Bekaert Textiles Europe proudly presents "Second Life", a fine collection of mattress tickings, using Miroglio Group'sd top quality New Life yarns that have been recycled from used pet bottles.

Yarn spinners Miroglio and textile producers Bekaert Textiles are looking at ways to reduce the ecological footprint of their industrial activity and to improve their eco efficiency. As there is not enough space on the globe to exclusively live on organic and natural products, we need smart sustainable solutions. Offering novel products to the market, allowing the industry to engage in cradle-to-cradle concepts, is a step in the right direction.

Governments and citizens with a sense of responsibility across the EU are supporting the reduction, collection, recycling and re-use of litter. This is a must if we want to preserve the planet for our grandchildren. Using recycled polyester for yarn production saves energy and reduces water consumption and carbon emission drastically.

"It was crucial for Bekaert European Ticking to engage in this project with the right partner, says Philip Ghekiere,innovation manager of Bekaert Textiles, and our partner Miroglio combines technical expertise, transparent quality assurance with inspiring enthusiasm".

Let us join the big corporations like Nike, Nokia and Sony and re-use millions of bottles, tons of waste for a cleaner world.
