Shoppers are aware of the sustainable actions demonstrated by companies. Research proves more choose those with an environmentally conscious value highlighted in their policy. Reflecting this ethos into smaller details with eco-friendly ribbons spotlights efforts to influence the reduction of waste.
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 thoroughly cleaned for hygienic purposes and then broken down into smaller plastic elements. The plastic flakes are melted into liquid form, and then converted into filaments. A number of filaments are then combined together and spun to create a 100% recycled ribbon yarn.
