Recycled ribbons that do not cost the Earth

Are you looking for a sustainable packaging solution for your product?

Here at Berisfords, we are always proud to be at the forefront of a new product and design innovation, especially when it helps the environment. That is why we are delighted to be able to offer a range of recycled ribbons that are manufactured from 100% polyester yarn.

We saw our opportunity to create eco-friendly ribbons that can help the environment in the future, as well as the presence. It isn’t just about how these ribbons impact the environment too, as they also look the part. Do you think we would sell you ribbons if they were not worthy of purchasing?

With the ever-increasing worldwide focus and awareness on recycling and sustainability, we have partnered with a European yarn supplier to develop sustainable ribbons that are woven with yarns that are made from 100% post-customer waste – “PET” or to put it simply, “plastic bottles”.

How is the recycled ribbon made?

The used plastic bottles that we use for our recycled ribbons are collected via various recycling points within mainland Europe. These bottles are then thoroughly cleaned for hygienic purposes and are then broken down into smaller plastic elements. These plastic flakes are melted back into a liquid form then converted into filaments. A number of filaments are then combined together and spun to create a 100% recycled ribbon yarn.

The manufacture and use of the recycled yarns promote sustainability and reduces environmental impact through the reduction in waste.

Recycled ribbons

At Berisfords Ribbons we are committed to providing ribbons that are beneficial to the environment, providing a sustainable option for the future. We use thousands of plastic bottles to reproduce beautiful ribbons so they are taken away from the ocean or general landfill, avoiding damage to these area from items that could be recycled.
Much like any ribbon, they are made to last and have a tough material. However, they can still be damaged and ribbon if considerable force is placed upon them. The ribbon extends the sustainability of the recycled bottles, as opposed to making the ribbon stronger and less likely to rip or tear. Here at Berisfords we are committed to enhancing the lifespan of plastic bottles instead of them being left in the ocean or landfill.
That is definitely the plan! We love the positive effect that this has had and continues to have on the environment, so we are always looking to expand on the amount of recycled ribbons we produce. For now, we are happy with how this ribbon yarn has turned out and will continue to save even more plastic bottles in the future by replicating this method on a mass scale.
