We are proud to share that our recycled PET resin grades with source material of Post-Consumer PET Bottle waste are now Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified. A GRS certification indicates that an organization follows responsible social, environmental and chemical practices in production.
This is EcoBlue’s commitment towards sustainability and our environment by not only providing high quality rPET that can replace virgin PET but also ensuring that the material is produced in safe and equitable working conditions with no harmful impact of production to people and the environment. EcoBlue’s rPET has been established for use in producing 90% rPET content biaxially-oriented films and is suitable for use in filament yarn.
The Global Recycled Standard is a holistic certification for products with recycled content. The desired effect of the GRS is to provide brands with a tool for more accurate labeling, to encourage innovation in the use of reclaimed materials, to establish more transparency in the supply chain, and to provide better information to consumers. GRS certification is administered by the Textile Exchange, a global non-profit dedicated to driving changes in sourcing and manufacturing and ultimately reducing the textile industry’s impact on the world’s water, soil, air, and people.
GRS certification ensures that when companies like us claim that we are sustainable, it is no false claim!
