Thermore's Ecodown now from fully recycled fibre content

Aug '16
Italian company Thermore is now converting the entire Ecodown thermal insulation product line to fully recycled fibre content, what it calls a next major step towards sustainability.

According to the company, Thermore has always been at the forefront in developing durable and resistant thermal insulation with a strong emphasis on sustainability.

The new Ecodown is the only synthetic product in the market to be made from 100 per cent post-consumer plastic bottles, which allows reuse of a considerable number of bottles.

Depending on the application, outerwear insulated with Ecodown can save up to 10 bottles per garment, while helping protect oil energy reserves for future generations.

“The Ecodown thermal insulation also does not require special quilting restrictions or fabrics and can be washed or dry cleaned with confidence,” Thermore said.

“This high level of durability equates to exceptional, long term warmth over the life of a garment,” the textile insulator maker observed.

“A wide variety of weights and thickness options or over 20 variations cater perfectly to every possible design requirement,” it informed. (AR)
