Recycling fabrics provide a use of these materials that otherwise would exacerbate the environmental problem of waste. Furthermore, it is a shame not to take advantage of this material since T-Shirt yarn is made with the excess of fabric coils.
Textile recycling has many advantages. The estimated annual textile consumption is 10 kg per person and this figure is equal to the waste material, if we add the excess of the factories the volume is huge, so you have to keep in mind that T-Shirt yarn, the thread recycling and recycling of clothes in general is a creative addition to a commitment to creating environmentally friendly materials.
Recycling is a practice that has come to the industry and there are 2 forms of textile recycling: fabrics made from recycled materials (eg. PET) or repurposing textiles and apparel.
When the fabric is reused, it can grind to regain woven fiber, or use the excess of rolls of fabric and from there comes T-Shirt yarn, which is new fabric.
The advantages of recycled materials from the ecological point of view compared with other textile materials are that you use fabric that has been already produced and this means an energy saving, in addition to:
- It saves water.
- It reduces the emission of harmful gases into the atmosphere.
- It reduces wastewater discharge.
- Waste is minimized.
- It reduces textile crops and pesticides.
