The Eco Process

Step by Step

Step 1: Plastic bottles are collected from recycling centres and brought to the re-processing factory. Here, they’re sorted into type and colour.

Step 2: The bottles are compacted 

 into bales, before  and washed ready for shredding.

Step 3: Each bottle is then shredded and passed through a processor, where it will be formed into uniform strands.

Step 4: The resulting strands are then cooled and cut to form a standard size chip. These chips are then packed and delivered to the yarn mill.

Step 5: The yarn is created through a process that produces a special eight-sided continuous filament, making sure there is the smallest amount of light reflection.

Step 6: Finally, the yarn is woven into an extremely durable twill, ready to make one of our very own Eco garments.


Every Eco garment created helps retailers, schools, parents and their children make a positive difference to the environment. This highly successful 6 step process lets us all put the planet first, without ever sacrificing on quality, durability or comfort.

Recycling

Recycling has been a company initiative that has been implemented for years now. Our aim is to recycle a significant proportion of our waste and continue to identify further opportunities for recycling.
