莱卡公司,为服装行业开发创新纤维和技术解决方案的全球领导者,宣布新款 LYCRA®(莱卡®)EcoMade 纤维已经通过 GRS(全球再生标准)认证。

The LYCRA Company, a global leader in innovative fiber and technology solutions for the apparel industry, announced its new LYCRA® EcoMade fibers Type 166E and 162E, currently produced in Brazil, have been certified to the GRS (Global Recycled Standard). LYCRA® EcoMade fiber is the company’s first branded spandex that is made with pre-consumer recycled materials. This offering will be the primary focus of The LYCRA® Company’s booth at the Kingpins New York denim trade show, November 19-20.

“We’re excited to have received GRS certification for these new products. The Global Recycled Standard verifies recycled material and includes strict social, environmental and chemical requirements.”

Jean Hegedus

Sustainability Director

The LYCRA Company

LYCRA® EcoMade fiber offers the same lasting comfort, fit and freedom of movement as the original LYCRA® fiber, but is made partly with fiber waste collected at the company’s manufacturing sites and blended with virgin polymer at specific concentrations. This reduces waste and puts it back into production.

“We believe sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement that touches every aspect of our business, from reducing energy, water usage and waste at our sites to developing new products with excellent performance and a smaller footprint,” said Hegedus. “As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability under The LYCRA Company’s Planet Agenda, we have also set a goal to convert the vast majority of our COOLMAX® and THERMOLITE® fiber business to post-consumer recycled versions by 2021.”

 

Trade show guests are welcome to visit The LYCRA Company booth to see its latest innovations for denim designed with sustainability in mind. Kingpins will take place November 19-20 at Basketball City, Pier 36 in New York City. Hours are Tuesday from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. and Wednesday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. For more show information, visit kingpinsshow.com/new-york.
