A North American manufacturer of recycled cotton yarn, FildiUSA, made an announcement that, its Ecotec, recycled cotton-blend yarn, has received a certificate from the Control Union's Global Recycle Standard (GRS).

Global Recycle Standard certifies a yarn's recycled content and also the sustainable and socially responsible manner in which it is manufactured. As per Fildi, it is the first yarn firm in US to have received the prestigious recognition.

As per Steven Usdan, President of FildiUSA, they are proud that their goods and processes have managed to meet the highest standards. With this important GRS certification, their consumers can be sure that, when they make use of Ecotec yarns, they are creating an impact in all manners in the world they live in. Till date, firms such as Whole Foods and Rachel Roy, who are environment conscious, have made use of Ecotec yarns in their textile goods.

Ecotec recycled cotton-blend yarns are made using new, pre-consumer cotton textile scraps, which are otherwise thrown away in landfills. As per Fildi, these fabric scraps are collected from cutting operations, sorted as per their colours, reprocessed, blended and re-spun in to yarns.

In this manner the landfill waste is eradicated, more so, since the cotton fabric scraps are already coloured, Ecotec yarns need not go through dyeing process. Thus, this helps save water and lessens environmental effluents. Re-using the cotton fabric scraps also helps save land, water and pesticides, which are linked with cultivating new cotton, avers Fildi.

This high quality, Ecotec recycled cotton-blend yarns are being manufactured by Fildi for over a decade now, said Usdan. Till date, consumers and producers were attracted to the numerous benefits of recycled yarns. Hence, Ecotec yarns will stand out for their superior quality, economical cost and from on even for their unique GRS certificate, added Usdan.

Ecotec yarns are available in a complete collection of stock and customized colours, spinning counts and blends. Further more, the firm also informs that, these yarns are the best if one has to produce bright, durable knit, and woven fabrics, which are utilised in garments, home textiles and a variety of other applications.

Ecotec yarns, apart from getting the GRS certification, already have the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate, which means they are free from over 100 substances, which are believed to be harmful for human health.
