The Lycra EcoMade fibres are the primary focus of The Lycra Company’s booth at the Kingpins New York denim trade show being held at present.
“We’re excited to have received GRS certification for these new products,” said Jean Hegedus, sustainability director, The Lycra Company. The Global Recycled Standard verifies recycled material and includes strict social, environmental and chemical requirements.
Lycra EcoMade fibre offers the same lasting comfort, fit and freedom of movement as the original Lycra fibre, but is made partly with fibre waste collected at the company’s manufacturing sites and blended with virgin polymer at specific concentrations. This reduces waste and puts it back into production.
“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 under The Lycra Company’s Planet Agenda, we have also set a goal to convert the vast majority of our Coolmax and Thermolite fibre business to 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. The Lycra Company owns leading consumer and trade brands: Lycra, Lycra HyFit, Lycra T400, L by Lycra, Coolmax, Thermolite, Elaspan, Supplex, Tactel, and Terathane.
