Recover works towards using textile waste as a raw material resource, diverting it from landfill and incineration. They become less dependent on virgin materials, and this allows saving water, energy, CO2 emissions and toxic chemicals.
10 to 20 % of all textiles in fashion industry are estimated to be waste and up to 95% of the textiles that are landfilled each year could be recycled. Thanks to their technology, Recover upcycled over 2,924 tones of textile waste in 2018.
Recover yarns contain a consistent percentage of 50% recover cotton, blended with other recycled material such as polyester from PET bottles, recycled nylon and hemp.
The high percentage of cotton means that the recycled yarn can be used in the production of high-end textiles, fit for the clothing industry. It also addresses the very high environmental pressure linked to virgin cotton production for the textile industry. Despite the market constraint of maintaining consistent quality and colours, the recycling process includes no water nor chemical dyes.
Textile waste and garments are collected from collection bins by Hilaturas Feere. To create the yarns, Recover combines 2 resource-efficient processes :
All products made out of Recover textiles can be recycled at the end of their lives, returning into the system for a new production loop.
In addition to its production process, the company offers a closed-loop waste management program for the fashion industry, by which it recovers all forms of cotton textile waste directly from brands and retailers and exchanges these resources for new yarns.
Recover Upcycled Cotton Yarns score the best in Higg MSI Index (shows that recover makes the lowest-impact cotton yarns in the global market and generously outperform virgin equivalent yarns across all sustainability metrics).
