Environmentally Friendly Fabrics
Fabrics Our Planet Can Appreciate
These days it's utterly impossible to not hear the concern for our planet's future. Global warming was never heard of until the 21st century or was it just ignored before then? Almost all markets globally have been affected by the "Big Green Monster" called the Environment. Finding unique ways of being environmentally friendly has proven to be a challenge for most, but just like getting a child to eat his or her vegetables, it's really for our own good.
There are many manufacturing companies striving to make mother earth a priority. Geobella and Sunbrella are just two examples. Geobella fabrics was recently introduced to Throw Pillow Source and has quickly become one of the sought after textiles in the indoor and outdoor fabric world. These green fabrics are made of 100% ofelin yarn. Ofelin is an environmentally-friendly synthetic yarn that is recycled from post industrial waste. It also takes lower energy and water consumption during manufacturing. Best of all, it can be recycled up to 10 times.
Sunbrella fabrics has been the pioneer of environmentally-friendly fabrics. Not only do they recycle waste into industrial products such as felt, insulation, and padding. Some of this waste is upcycled into novelty yarns for use in decorative Sunbrella fabrics.
GeoBella fabrics are TCFFA approved. Although completely PVC-free and recyclable, GeoBella fabric is soft, yet strong and stable, while maintaining the ability to resist both fade and water. The fabrics are resistant to mold and mildew and dry quickly, and they are well-suited for high-traffic areas because of their durability.
Consumers and retailers can now recycle old fabrics that will in turn become car parts, plant containers and even truck bed liners. What a difference an outdoor fabric can make. Not only does it highlight your outdoor living space but it's true to its surroundings. There is nothing like "natural" beauty.
