100% Recycled Polyester Ribbon
Double Satin Ribbon From 100% Recycled Plastic Bottles
We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers a range of high quality UK manufactured Double Satin Ribbon manufactured from 100% recycled plastic bottles!
This new range of ribbon is made using plastic bottles which are collected in mainland Europe via recycling points, the bottles are then cleaned and broken down into plastic flakes. These flakes are melted down and extrouded into polyester filaments which are combined together and spun to create a 100% recycled yarn.
The recycled yarns are certified by GRS which is the Global Recycled Standard and also by Oeko Tex which is the global standard for textiles.
Here's some interesting facts;
- 1kg of recycled yarn uses 28 one and a half litre plastic bottles
- 1,000m of ribbon in a 25mm width uses 1200 recycled bottles.
This range of Double Satin Ribbon currently comes in eight widths and twelve of the most popular colours. This range will be expanded over the coming months until all the double satin ribbbon range have been converted across to 100% recycled polyester.
