Puma takes step forward in reducing textile waste with polyester tech

It’s replacing recycled polyester with RE:FIBRE tech in all of its football Club and Federation replica jerseys from 2024 onwards. It launched a pilot in 2022 and has produced recycled training jerseys for its sponsored football clubs since then. It has also used the tech to create Switzerland and Morocco replica kits for the Women’s World Cup. 

For next year, official Puma football replica jerseys including those for the Euro and Copa América tournaments will be made using RE:FIBRE recycled materials that derive from old garments and factory waste rather than only recycled plastic bottles.The company said this is helping its aim of reducing textile waste and is a long-term solution for recycling.Its RE:FIBRE process uses any polyester material – from factory offcuts to faulty goods and pre-owned clothes — and means new garments can be recycled from any colour textile to any colour desired.The four-step process starts with collection and sorting of materials, moves on to shredding and mixing, then melting down the shredded polyester and ridding it of previous dyes through a chemical recycling processคำพูดจาก เกมสล็อต. The melting allows the newly produced polymers to become ready to be spun and sewn into shape to create “good as new RE:FIBRE fabric which can be recycled again and again”.“Our wish is to have 100% of product polyester coming from textile waste,” said Anne-Laure Descours, Chief Sourcing Officer at the firm. “Textile waste build-up in landfills is an environmental risk. Rethinking the way we produce and moving towards a more circular business model is one of the main priorities of our sustainability strategy.”The firm has also created a video containing computer-generated imagery to take consumers through the RE:FIBRE process, right down to the molecular chemistry at workคำพูดจาก สล็อตวอเลทล่าสุด. This is part of its aim to ensure its sustainability initiatives “are simplified for everyone to engage with”.
