Bottle Bag material
This Bag is made from 65% Ecotec
- a blended cotton yarn produced from the excess fabric
of newly made clothing - and 35% Bottle
Bag material - material made from 100%
recycled soda bottles. This unique manufacturing process
saves land, energy and water. For the best performance available,
35% of this bag contains 100% recycled soda bottle material.
to the Council for Textile Recycling, 25,000 tons of new
textile fiber is disposed of by North American spinning
mills, weavers and fabric manufacturers each year. Technology
now exists to make new cotton yarn from gin waste, commercial
fabric trimmings and mills ends. Recycled cotton is recovered
cotton that would be wasted during the spinning, weaving
and cutting processes. Up to 40% of cotton grown is wasted
between the harvest and the manufacture of garments. In
the past, this waste went directly into landfills.
What Does "Recycled" Really
When you compare, look for specific information. If a label
says "recycled," check how much of the product or package
is recycled and where the recycled material comes from.
"Post-consumer" material comes from previously
used business or consumer products, such as newspapers,
shipping cartons, plastic bottles, glass containers, and
Post-Industrial or Pre-Consumer
"Post-Industrial" or "Pre-Consumer"
material is basically manufacturing waste. For example,
an envelope manufacturer might recycle the clippings leftover
when envelopes are cut from paper. These clippings could
be made into other paper products instead of being thrown
