The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is promoted by Textile Exchange , one of the most important non-profit organizations that internationally promote responsible and sustainable development in the textile sector
With this standard, Textile Exchange recognizes the fundamental importance of recycling for the growth of a model of sustainable production and consumption; aims to encourage the reduction of resource consumption (virgin raw materials, water and energy) and to increase the quality of recycled products. The GRS provides for the issue of a third party verified environmental statement which proves:
- The content of recycled materials of their products (both intermediate and finished)
- Compliance with environmental and social criteria in all of the production chain.
Technow is proud of being registered as a GRS operator by the usage of yarns obtained from the recycling of plastic bottles (PET), fishing nets, carpets and car tires. This new frontier of high quality “eco-friendly” recycled fabrics has all the characteristics to guarantee the highest quality standards in the environmental respect. Recycling and reusing textiles, fibres and waste materials is an effective method to build sustainability in the apparel industry and in the current scenario, recycling clothing would have an effect equivalent to removing one million cars off the road every year.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!!
