… a breakthrough product that helps reduce plastic microfiber pollution in our oceans and synthetic textile accumulation in landfills.
Beaver Paper of Lawrenceville, GA, has introduced its new TexStyles® NatureSeries® which Is a breakthrough product that helps reduce plastic microfiber pollution in our oceans and synthetic textile accumulation in landfills.
TexStyles® NatureSeries™ Soft Knit is a revolutionary new line of fabrics made with cutting-edge sustainable technology – CiCLO® Fibers.
- Natural White Point
- Vivid Color Reproductions
- Available in Direct to Fabric Finish
Fabrics made with CiCLO® fibers will biodegrade at the end of their lifecycle like natural fibers such as wool, as opposed to hundreds of years for traditional synthetics, including recyclables.
CiCLO fibers reduce plastic pollution in two ways:
Fabrics made from polyester, nylon, and many other synthetics are actually plastic. As with almost all fabrics, they can shed small fibers, known as microfibers, when worn and washed. These plastic fibers are very small, difficult to recover, and wind up in our oceans. Most plastic doesn’t naturally biodegrade, but fibers made with CiCLO® will eventually biodegrade in seawater just like wool would. Unfortunately, mass apparel recycling is not available today and most of it is thrown away when no longer wanted, piling up in landfills. Like in seawater, fibers made with CiCLO® will eventually biodegrade in landfill conditions.
CiCLO® fibers have no impact other than to allow the microbes that naturally exist in the environment to be able to biodegrade the material just like they do for natural materials like wool. The biodegradation process takes a long time and will not happen during use or care just like wool doesn’t biodegrade during use or care.
