This new fibre is the company’s first branded elastane/spandex product that is made with pre-consumer recycled materials.
Lycra EcoMade fibre offers the same lasting comfort, fit and freedom of movement as the original Lycra fibre, but is made with waste collected at the company’s manufacturing sites and blended with virgin fibre at specific concentrations. This reduces waste and puts it back into production.
"A recent study showed that two out of three respondents thought sustainability is one of the top three issues impacting our world today, and over 50 per cent said they wanted to improve their footprint in the area of textile and apparel waste," said Jean Hegedus, sustainability director of The Lycra Company. "Our EcoMade solutions will help our customers meet the consumer’s need for more sustainable apparel."
Product sustainability is one of the three interdependent pillars in The Lycra Company's Planet Agenda, which also includes corporate responsibility and manufacturing excellence. This framework represents the company's commitment to developing products and technologies that minimise its environmental footprint, enhancing the performance of its customers' offerings, and safeguarding the health and safety of its employees and the communities where they work.
"We believe sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement that touches every aspect of our business, from reducing energy, water usage and waste at our sites to developing new products with excellent performance and a smaller footprint," said Hegedus. "As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability we have also set a goal to convert the vast majority of our Coolmax and Thermolite fibre business to EcoMade (post-consumer recycled) versions by 2021."
The Lycra Company innovates and produces fibre and technology solutions for the apparel and personal care industries, as well as specialty chemicals used in the spandex and polyurethane value chains. Headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware. The Lycra Company is recognised worldwide for its innovative products, technical expertise, and unmatched marketing support.
