Making textile items from recycled cotton has been done for years now, but until recently, producers couldn’t guarantee strength and durability without adding virgin cotton, polyester or plastics. By contrast, easyessentials items are made through a patented process that uses 100% cotton waste and delivers high quality products. We are the first company in Europe to produce non-blended cotton waste textiles, which brings important environmental savings.
By using only cotton waste in the production process, there is no need to grow fresh cotton. This saves significant amounts of land and water and reduces CO2 emissions.
By using cotton waste, there is no need to grow fresh cotton as raw material for new textiles. Savings are calculated as the number of square meters (m2) of land that can now be used for other crops.
Growing cotton plants requires huge amounts of water. By using cotton waste, this water can be saved. These savings are calculated as the amount water (liters) that is no longer needed and can be used for other purposes.
