GOTS AND RECYCLE

The world wants… GOTS and recycled polyester

The world and its consumers has a steadily growing focus on looking out for the environment and hereby a greater demand for sustainability when choosing products.

As a company, we at Fipo believe that we play an important role in securing both environmental and human aspects in all of our processes, and can among other brandings offer GOTS certificated products and textile products made out of recycled polyester.

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain from field to end user.  When choosing GOTS you are ensured organic products as well as an environmental and social sustainable production.

As a new initiative, we have started working with recycled polyester as an alternative to virgin polyester and other synthetic materials.

When choosing recycled polyester you help clean up landfills from PET bottles and other plastics, as they have instead been collected and turned in to fabric for textiles.

The process consists of the following steps from plastic to yarn:

  • Plastic bottles are being collected and sorted after type and color.
  • When sorted, the labels and lids are removed. The bottles are washed, crushed and chopped into plastic flakes
  • The plastic is first dried, then smelted and pressed through a spinneret to create long strings of yarn
  • The yarn is then wound up in spools
  • To create a fluffy texture the yarn is heated in a crimping machine
  • The yearn is now ready to be baled, dyed and knitted into polyester fabric.

Marvel’s movie 'Black Panther' broke the records for a movie with premiere in February. The movie had an opening weekend gross of $ 242 million, and is now number five on the list of movies with the highest grossing opening weekend in U.S. and Canada of all time.

Several film experts predicts the movie good changes to win an Oscar in 2019. 

The great Box Office success has resulted in toys and other products related to the new superhero movie 'Black Panther' being torn down from the shelves.
