100% Recycled Ribbon - Shoplivepages::jquery();?>
At Pips Crafts we are delighted to be able to offer a range of ribbons that are manufactured from 100% recycled polyester yarn.
These fantastic ribbons from Berisfords are woven with yarns made from 100% postconsumer waste “PET” or to put simply “plastic bottles”.
The used plastic bottles are collected via recycling points within mainland Europe. The bottles are thoroughly cleaned then broken down into smaller plastic elements. These plastic flakes are melted back in to a liquid form then converted into filaments. A number of filaments are then combined together and spun to create a 100% recycled yarn.
100,000m of 25mm satin uses 12,000 recycled bottles.
That’s 12,000 bottles not going to waste, landfill or damaging the wider environment.
The resulting yarns are certified by GRS which is the Global Recycled Standard and also by Oeko Tex which is the global industry standard for textiles.
The manufacture and use of the recycled yarns promote sustainability and reduces environmental impact through the reduction in waste.
