Precision Textiles Uses RPET Fibres To Reduce Carbon Footprint

To reduce its carbon footprint Precision Textiles has partnered with Unifi; manufacturers of Repreve recycled fibre and use these fibres in the manufacturing of all its filler cloth products.

The first-of-its-kind collaboration within the industry makes Precision Textiles the only bedding component manufacturer to use Repreve recycled performance fibre in its nonwoven products.

Repreve is the world’s leading recycled polyester fibre brand and was developed to address the growing concern related to plastic waste in the environment.

Its yarns are spun from recycled plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in landfills and oceans.

The yarns provide an alternative to virgin fibres and have been proven to reduce climate change potential by repurposing discarded plastic, thereby mitigating the carbon emissions associated with producing new materials.

The new partnership offers an immediate positive impact on Precision Textiles sustainability initiatives and assures that the company is part of a meaningful change that will contribute to improving the world.

Every 100-yard roll of the company’s Endure IFR and Advantage SB nonwoven products will include Repreve recycled performance fibre that is made from 228 recycled water bottles.

As a result, Precision Textiles will eliminate more than 20 million plastic water bottles from waste streams on an annual basis.

Precision Textiles has long supported environmental stewardship managing resources in a way that assures sustainability and benefits both present and future generations.

The company produces and supplies one of the most comprehensive assortments of USDA Bio-Preferred and UL Greenguard GOLD certified FR solution product lines throughout the entire mattress industry.
