World’s leading industrial thread company, Coats has launched a new range of biodegradable threads that support customers’ sustainability agendas. Known as Coats EcoRegen, the thread is made from 100 per cent lyocell, a renewable fiber derived from wood pulp sourced from sustainably managed forests. This eco-friendly regenerated fiber is suitable for a wide range of apparel applications to accommodate multiple customer needs.
The launch of EcoRegen is part of Coats’ Eco Journey roadmap to produce innovative sustainable products which support Coats’ drive towards a circular economy. The company plans to launch two more products soon. These include EcoCycle, a range of water dissolvable thread that facilitates garment recycling and end to end circularity; and Eco-B is a recycled polyester thread incorporating an additive which reduces synthetic fiber accumulation in landfills and microfiber pollution in oceans.
