We were excited to offer a product made from recycled materials as we are proud to be a business that values sustainability and the ethical origins of our products. We want that to reflect through our printing processes and also through our products. Currently we do offer a range of Fairtrade & Organic bags and homewares, but we wanted to take that a step further and create a product made of recycled cotton, and we did. But the question is, why is that so significant? And why is recycled cotton so important?
While the cotton we use is sourced sustainably, it does use natural resources to grow and harvest. So, a way to avoid using these resources to grow new raw cotton for textile production, why not use pre-existing cotton? This is where the recycled cotton process begins.
