PALTEX’s sustainable textile collections are the innovative solutions that change the global textile ecosystem of linear economy in the traditional textile business model. This can also deliver long-term benefits of a new eco textile economy and keep waste materials, such as fishing net, plastic bottles and waste apparel at their highest value.
As more brands realise their potential to use business as a force for positive environmental and social impact, PALTEX responds to the call for sustainability to launched a serious of eco-friendly textile collections
Care for the ocean
Sustainable Nylon – Recovering ocean waste From waste fishing nets to the textile
PALTEX sustainable nylon is made of regenerated materials – abandoned fishing nets. This collection aims to spread awareness of ocean conservation issues and protect marine life through the recovery of abandoned fishing nets. PALTEX regenerated fishing net nylon has made from 100% Taiwanese waste fishing nets, which were collected from the coastline of Taiwan. The steps of the recycling process of collection sorting and processing of textile are all in Taiwan, thereby saving the environment CO2 emissions produced during the manufacture and transport of raw material. After the complex recycled procedure to produce the regenerative nylon fabrics, all the process is certified by the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) by meeting its environmental impact requirements.
Care for fibre
Sustainable Polyester – Closed-loop recycling of waste apparel products
At PALTEX, sustainability has been a crucial business direction.“Garment recycled polyester” is the sustainable textile collection that re-uses the waste apparel products to manufacture high-quality polyester. Also, it is certified for recycled content claims by GRS and OEKO TEX, the well-known international eco-labels.
PALTEX garment recycled polyester is designed to resolve the environmental problems of waste clothing. Today’s linear system uses large amounts of resources and has negative impacts on the environment and people. However, in a circular textiles system, the problem of waste textile can be eliminated and its negative impacts reduced. Radically improving textile recycling would allow the textile & fashion industries to capture the material value of waste that can no longer be used.
Care for the land
Biodegradable Polyester – Solve Fashion Waste Problem
Plastic pollution devastates oceans and land ecosystems worldwide and much of the microplastic problem is a plastic clothing problem. Current the path for textile post-use 99% of textile eventually landfilled via three processes, only 1 % of textile can be reused and recycled.
At PALTEX we have been committed to sustainable textile along the entire value chain for many years. Our latest Bio-degradable collections include bio- Polypropylene, bio-woven and bio-knit collections, which design for sports apparel and outdoor furniture, bag and baby carriage categories.
PAL Tech bio-degradable technology is by adding the organic additives into the fibre, while in the anaerobic condition the destruction of the material happens directly through the consumption by microbes. Regarding the timeline of biodegradability, bio-degradable textile takes nearly 3-4 years; compares to the virgin synthetic fabrics take 450 years.
Care for the planet
Recycled polyester – Bring the new lift for the post-consumer plastic bottles
Plastic bottles are used every second. PALTEX recycled polyester is made from post-consumer plastic bottles, which is highly eco-friendly materials.
Recycled polyester gives a second life to a material that’s not biodegradable and would otherwise end up in a landfill or the ocean. This can keep plastics from going to landfill and the ocean to reduce plastic pollution and helps to preserve natural resources by requiring less petroleum, energy and water to produce.
Recycled polyester is almost the same as virgin polyester in terms of quality, but its production requires less energy compared to virgin polyester. Moreover, recycled polyester can contribute to reducing the extraction of crude oil and natural gas from the Earth to make more plastic.
