Velcro Companies received the Textile Exchange’s Recycled Claim Standard for the VELCRO® Brand ECO Product Line, a family of hook & loop fasteners made with recycled content. As part of our global product development strategy, this greatly supports Velcro Companies’ initiative to create more sustainable products that help make the world a better place.
Velcro Companies Delivers on Sustainability Goals for Global Manufacturers
To obtain the certification, multiple Velcro Companies facilities passed a stringent audit performed by the Control Union. This verified that our manufacturing processes met the requirements for the Recycled Claim Standard. Our facilities have been serving footwear and apparel customers for years and now have the extra validation of the Recycled Claim Standard Certification.
As consumers demand companies do more to help the environment, footwear and apparel brands are working to design products that help divert material from landfills. Using a trusted brand with the Recycled Claim Standard Certification can greatly help brands align with this goal as they develop environment-friendly products.
The Recycled Claim Standard Adds Validity for Brands & Transparency for Consumers
The Textile Exchange is a global non-profit organization that seeks to lead positive action for the environment through the fashion and textile industry. The organization develops and promotes leading industry standards and collects and publishes important industry data that is used by brands to better manage and track their use of preferred materials.
The Recycled Claim Standard is a voluntary set of requirements for third-party material procurement and chain of custody. Its goal is to increase the use of recycled materials among textile manufacturers and provide assurance in accuracy of materials.
