sustainable embroidery thread made from plastic bottles
Embroidery Sustainability with Recycled Plastic Bottle Thread
5th April 2023

Are you looking for an eco-friendly embroidery thread? We have recently started making the transition to Madeira’s recycled plastic bottle thread, “Poly Neon Green” which is manufactured from 100% PET recycled plastic bottles. This thread not only offers superior performance but also provides a sustainable option.

How It’s Made

  • PET plastic bottles are recycled
  • The bottles are then shredded into flakes
  • The flakes then go through a process where they are formed into chips
  • Next the chips are melted into liquid and extruded through micro holes
  • Finally the recycled fibres are spun into an amazing new thread – POLYNEON green!

Recycled Plastic Bottle Thread – The Sustainable Option

One of the main benefits of Madeira’s Poly Neon Green thread is its positive impact on the environment. By using recycled materials, it reduces waste and conserves natural resources. Additionally, this thread is OEKO-TEX certified, which means it is free from harmful substances. OEKO-TEX certification is a globally recognized standard that assures textiles meet strict environmental and social responsibility standards.

Madeira Poly Neon Green thread is also incredibly durable and colourfast, ensuring your embroidery designs will look great for years to come. With a wide range of colours available, you can create vibrant and detailed designs that truly stand out.

The clothing industry has a significant impact on the environment, with textile production being one of the biggest contributors to pollution and waste. There is a growing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly clothing as consumers become more aware of the industry’s environmental impact. By transitioning to recycled thread, we can now offer our customers a more sustainable option for their embroidery needs and help you promote your commitment to sustainability. Because let’s face it we could all reduce our environmental impact!

We are proud to use this innovative thread and we highly recommend it to anyone of customers seeking a more sustainable option.
