Earth Day

Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Now in it’s 54th year, it is a global event co-ordinated by Earthday.org ( where you can find out more information)

 

The theme for 2024 is “Planet v. Plastic”

 

A Forbes article here shares some frankly shocking facts about plastic production

 

How can we help?

 

Many of our Luxaflex fabrics are:

ReLife fabrics: recycled polyester post- consumer PET bottles

GreenScreen Sea-Tex fabrics: the worlds first sunscreen fabric made from 50% recycled ocean plastic waste

RCY PES: recycled polyester


Energy Efficiency with Duette3 from Luxaflex
Energy Efficiency with Duette3 from Luxaflex

 

There are many more approaches our industry is also taking, to ensure our carbon footprint is as low as possible; over 300 fabrics in our Luxaflex Duette range have Cradle to Cradle Bronze certification. As does the Silent Gliss NewLife range of fabrics; their Trevira fabric ranges are made of 100% recycled polyester (pre-consumer)

Many of our ranges meet the Oeko-Tex 100 standard, testing for harmful substances

 

We could go on, and we should.

 

If you want to know more, why not book an appointment and discuss it further?
