BIODEGRADABLE

Industry-first
100% post-consumer recycled
biodegradable polyester

BIODEGRADABLE CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES™ address the daunting problem of how to deal with polyester fabric at the end of its useful life. By redesigning throwaway materials into biodegradable textiles*, we can solve the problem at its roots and help keep plastic out of our oceans and landfills.

We achieve this through the addition of a bio-catalyst in the yarn-extrusion process which enables anaerobic digestion in landfill and wastewater treatment conditions.*

  • Biodegradable* in landfill after 1,278 days
    (tested under ASTM D5511)
  • Manufactured for recyclability or biodegradability
  • Industry-leading performance without compromising sustainability

Ocean Waste

100% POST-CONSUMER RECYCLED POLYESTER WITH OCEAN WASTE

CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES™ tackle one of the most pressing environmental issues we face today: pollution of oceans by plastics. By partnering with the SEAQUAL™ initiative, we can transform ocean waste into amazing textiles.

This innovative sourcing approach makes us part of a collective effort to clean our oceans and reduce plastic pollution worldwide.

  • Biodegradable* in landfill after 1,278 days
    (tested under ASTM D5511)
  • Manufactured for recyclability or biodegradability
  • Industry-leading performance without compromising sustainability
  • For every pound of fabric produced, up to half a pound of marine waste is removed from the ocean
  • Compliance with the highest industry standards
  • Full traceability throughout the supply chain

Together, let's make an impact!

*Rate and extent of biodegradation into elements found in nature is 91% after 1,278 days under ASTM D5511 (Anaerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials Under High Solids Anaerobic Digestion Conditions). The test was done with the same component (PET) polyester and biocatalyst additive. No evidence of further degradation.
