For every 10,000 tonnes of Econyl raw material, Aquafil is able to save 70,000 barrels of crude oil and avoid 57,100 tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions.
Fishing nets have become a huge problem for marine life. Whales, dolphins, sharks, turtles and other marine life are being trapped by the nets left behind by fishermen. But with some clever innovations and technology, fashion could be the answer to cleaning up some of these nets and saving the lives of our beautiful marine life.
While ECONYL is an excellent initiative that repurposes trash and helps clean up our waterways, there's still a small issue with microfibers. These tiny plastic particles are released from synthetic fibers, including ECONYL, so it's important to minimize them when using recycled plastic fabric. We recommend using a wash bag or filter in your washing machine or purchasing ECONYL goods that don't require regular washing, such as shoes and swimwear.
As a small company, we're committed to developing even better techniques that benefit the planet and our wellbeing.
