US spinner gets recycle standard
Written by John Mowbray
NEW YORK - US recycled cotton producer FildiUSA has become the first US yarn company to be awarded the Global Recycle Standard from Control Union.
New York-based FildiUSA, which claims to be the largest producer of recycled cotton yarn in North America, says its range of 'Ecotex' recycled cotton blend yarns are now certified to the Global Recycle Standard (GRS), which categorises products based on the amount of pre and/or post consumer recycled raw materials they contain expressed as a percentage -- with a minimum of 5% content.
