Doubletex strives to promote and maintain a healthy environment by promoting ecologically friendly products. By using 100% certified organic cotton and Repreve recycled polyester, Doubletex responded to their customers' needs by creating a line of "Green" fabrics. Ecoterra will be launched at the Canadian textile industry's landmark event, Expo Hightex. Expo Hightex will be taking place at Bonsecours Market, Downtown Montréal, on 7 & 8 October 2009.

70% "green" in construction, Doubletex has created three recyclable and exciting new products built with 35% Organic Cotton/35% Repreve recycled polyester & 30% polyester. Ecoflex Poplin & Twill, two new additions to Doubletex's innovative "Truflex" comfort stretch line of fabrics and EcoDrill, a sturdy high performance twill. Demand is high and customer feedback has been very positive.

Two other products are the EcoTwist, a 100% organic Cotton dobby and the All in One 100% Ripstop made with stretch Repreve AIO. Recycled polyester Ripstop includes all the finishes required for a high performance fabric from an environmentally safe anti-microbial finish in addition to moisture management and soil release.

Doubletex is proud of its environmental initiatives that include being one of the few Textile Industrial Energy innovators that include reducing Green house gases. By recycling all fabric cutouts coming from all textile divisions and by using recycled plastic as much as possible, Doubletex has greatly reduced its carbon footprint. Doubletex is committed to the future of our Planet.

Ecoterra will be just one of the many fascinating innovations to be discovered at Expo Hightex 2009. If the thought of learning more about high-tech Canadian products turns you on, come down and check it out. You'll be rubbing shoulders with international industry and research leaders. Details at .
