Recycled Textiles Into Beautiful Products
A leading hanger producer challenged us to recycle post-consumer fashion waste into clothes hangers. The fashion and textile industries are the second largest polluters behind only the oil industry.
Resource: Germany collects more than 150 truckloads of unwanted clothes every day! We use these textiles to transform this “waste” into injection moldable fiber pellets that can be used in any injection mold machine. Allowing for the creating of nearly anything you can imagine.
Circular Material: The recycled fiber pellets are added to a fully recycled polypropylene resin at the factory. We replace the virgin polypropylene resin with a post-consumer recycled one.
Application: The industry’s first Circular Hanger! Made out of 100% recycled content. 100% recyclable. At the end of life, the hangers get collected, reground, and injected back into new hangers again to allow for a closed-loop cycle.
