YKK, a leading name among zipper manufacturers, has launched the all new
sustainable products with the aim of reducing carbon emission, toxic
chemical and water usage.
The products included in its latest collection are made using the
remains of polyester and other fibres and PET bottles. The company
claims that making of 10,000 Natulon zippers recycles about 3,600
plastic bottles (29g/bottles). All these recycled zippers meet Bluesign
The range also includes GreenRise zippers that are developed using the
polyester derived from plant-based plastics, made from molasses, the
by-product generated in the sugar production process.
This helps eliminating the use of polyesters that are
derived from convention fossil fuel, ultimately reducing the consumption
of fossil fuel and emission of CO2 in
the product life cycle.
Furthermore, the range also consists of different snaps and buttons
manufactured using the environment-friendly process, thereby reducing
the thermal energy, water usage, toxic chemical and waste.
