REDUCING PLASTIC WASTE USING RECYCLED YARN

At FIDELITY MANUFACTURING we are prioritising the need to rapidly reduce our environmental impact, studying the processes of garment manufacture and where possible, reduce waste and our environmental impact to a minimum. This process starts with yarn and fabric, the cornerstone to all garments.

We are working in partnership with THREAD International, who collect ocean plastic waste from the shores of Haiti and Honduras, providing income opportunities to some of the world's poorest and most under-developed communities, whilst removing harmful toxic plastic waste from the ocean, shoreline, beeches and landfill.

The ocean plastic waste is recycled into rPET yarn.

Most importantly THREAD International provide full, open and transparent traceability.

Furthermore, our background in performance technical textiles has pushed us to innovate within this sector, combining rPET yarn with functional wicking polyester yarn to bring added function.
