Scraps of fabrics that are discarded during the manufacturing process are collected and turned back into fibres ready to be reused in the production of new products. Since the recycling process weakens the cotton, it is necessary to use other fibres for strength. A Slice of Green recycled cotton contains 80% recycled fibre and 20% virgin cotton, ensuring it is plastic-free.
The material is certified by Global Recycled Standard (GRS) whose aim is to:
- Reduce the harmful impact of production on people and the environment.
- Provide assurance that products are processed in a more climate-friendly way.
- Encourage higher proportions of recycled content in products.
