Re-New and Re-Cover, Parotex is paying more and more attention to the planet
Sustainability, care for the environment and good practices to preserve the Planet toward a better future.
Good thoughts that also underlie those involved in the production of textile materials and their processing. Textiles that, increasingly, are recycled and are used to make innovative products – such as the exclusive Re-New and Re-Cover by Parotex, the former made with a yarn that uses part pre-consumer production waste and part plastic bottles transformed into new eco-sustainable yarns, and the latter produced with a yarn that uses scraps from weaving and knitting mills.
These novelties are part of an ever-changing market that, from apparel to furniture to textile supplies for hotels and restaurants, is increasingly sensitive to virtuous production processes, energy and water savings, and reducing pollution as much as possible.
But what do we really mean when we talk about sustainable materials in textiles?
Recycled or regenerated, on the one hand there are fabrics made from waste materials, such as plastic, that have a new life guaranteeing quality and environmental protection, and on the other hand there are products that are born from waste from previous processing and are put back on the market in new forms. At the basis of it all is a single purpose: to reduce environmental impact even in production processes, paying attention to decreasing waste, the use of polluting materials and saving water and energy, while still ensuring high quality.
The yarn used to produce Re-New tablecloth, for example, allows according to the numbers of the ICEA-certified LCA (Life CycleAssessment) assessment dedicated to the product’s life cycle-to reduce 56.3% of greenhouse gas emissions, 56.6% of energy savings and 77.9% of water reduction throughout the production chain. Sustainability guaranteed by obtaining GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certification – promoted by TextileExchange, one of the most important non-profit organizations working internationally for responsible and sustainable development of the textile industry – Oeko-Tex 100 and Certified Quality System Company ISO 9001:2015. The Re-New napkin is made of 48% virgin cotton, 26% recycled cotton and obtained from part of pre-consumer cuttings, and 26% recycled polyester, obtained from the reuse of plastic bottles.
A high-quality product that also provides important benefits for industrial laundries:
1 – the durability of the fabric;
2 – the improvement of stain removal;
3 – the savings in energy costs due to the reduction of water evaporation (-25%);;
4 – the improved dimensional stability due to the presence of polyester;
5 – the faster drying;
6 – the increased productivity during ironing.
Parotex’s exclusive Re:Cover, on the other hand, guarantees – according to numbers based on LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) the ICEA-certified product life cycle assessment – 46.6% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, 46.9% in energy savings, 61.6% in water consumption throughout the production chain. Numbers also confirmed by the certifications obtained: GRS (Global RecycledStandard), Oeko-Tex 100 and Certified Quality System Company ISO 9001:2015. The Re-Cover napkin is composed of 100% recycled cotton.
Data that add to the many benefits for industrial laundries:
1 – Customers are doing their part to conserve natural resources by using recycled products;
2 – The recycled fibers were spun using the open-end process ensuring a much stronger yarn;
3 – The final 100% recycled cotton product costs 15% less than 100% virgin cotton.
Attention, which is increasingly necessary, to environmental protection, which can be carried out even with small gestures such as the use of sustainable and carefully made products, production processes that leave nothing to chance, and with an eye toward an increasingly sustainable and better future for all.
