Our Industry Has Carbon Issues
Most clothes are made using energy from coal-fueled power plants, which adds warming gases into the air we breathe and accelerates the climate crisis. In just one year, the clothing industry will contribute 1.2 billion tons of CO₂ emissions—that’s as much as international flights and maritime shipping combined.
We're letting go of virgin materials.
Extracting and processing virgin materials takes a toll on land, water and air. To do our part, Autron Industry is moving toward 100% renewable and recycled raw materials. By using both synthetic and natural fibers made from pre-consumer and postconsumer waste, we are limiting our dependence on raw materials and reducing carbon emissions.
The percentage of our raw materials this season that are made with recycled inputs.
Our Postconsumer Recycling
Postconsumer refers to any finished product that has been used and then diverted from landfills at the end of its life. This term includes anything you throw in the recycling bin at home or at designated textile-collection bins, as well used fishing nets, carpet and other consumer goods that can be recycled into textiles.
Our Pre-Consumer Recycling
Sometimes referred to as “postindustrial,” pre-consumer waste is created during the manufacturing process, like fabric scraps or yarn waste from weaving mills and spinning factories. Sometimes, as when recycling postindustrial cotton, the recycled yarn is mixed with other materials, like polyester, to ensure there is no loss in performance.
Why Recycled Polyester?
60% of the world's clothing, accessories is made from polyester, a plastic made from oil. Usin recycled polyester lessens our dependence on fossil, and keep plastic bottles out of landfills.
Why Recycled Nylon?
Nylon is a type of plastic made from crude oil. By using recycled nylon, we are reducing emissions and limiting our dependence to chemical fuel.
Why Recycled Cotton?
It takes about 173 gallons of water to produce one pound of conventional cotton. By using recycled cotton, we save water and reduce 80$ CO2 emissions compare with regular cotton.
Why Recycled Polyurethane?
Traditional polyurethane is made from oil. Recycled polyurethane is made from water base polyurethane and recyclde polyester backing. This reduces the amount of petroleum we use in our products, and much safer for people to work with.
