For each K-Loop product we can certify the water and energy savings we have made by recycling our cotton
What is the advantage of all these projects?
There are many advantages that are easy to list and, as we will see later, they are also measurable. The K-Loop Project is not only about one father’s dream but about quantifying and qualifying the real and tangible commitment of a company in the circular economy.
Recovering and reusing materials at the production site. Cotton
- The production of organic cotton allows you to avoid the use of pesticides. When we recycle our cotton we use a large portion of organic cotton in addition to traditional cotton. This allows us to multiply the advantages of recycling because, in addition to saving water and chemicals, organic cotton already respects nature.
- By using a network of very close suppliers, we avoid the carbon footprint as much as possible.
- By using our cotton in its original colour, we avoid dyeing virgin cotton and the overconsumption of water and chemicals as a result.
Transforming and reusing materials such as PET*, which pollutes our seas.
- We collect PET bottles and turn them into polyester yarn.
- Polyester recovered from PET saves a lot of water and energy for an equivalent weight, thus reducing the carbon impact of the energy production cycle.
It’s all great, but is it true?
YES, it’s all true
To trace, certify and measure each step of this process, we have partnered with the Aware programme and the use of cutting-edge technologies such as blockchains.
In addition to this, we use the GRS certification with the relevant transition certificates for each production step.
We are so convinced and confident in our work that we open up our entire production chain by indicating where, how and by whom our recycling process is managed.
Surnames and first names because we are transparent like recycled water returning to the sea. Our K-Loop special.
What are tracers and blockchains?
By spinning our cotton as we have described, we introduce tracers that are micro particles with a unique fingerprint. We then save all the digitised data for this unique fingerprint in a “digital passport” (the famous tokens). The tokens are registered in a decentralised blockchain.
This ensures that the data is always unique, honest and unalterable throughout the production process to the end customer.
Not only is the fabric traceable but every time it is turned into a product it can always be traced back to the origin of the recycled material.
