Recycled Cotton

A popular choice for brands wanting branded merchandise with a conscience. Made from either pre-consumer waste or post-consumer waste and available in a variety of weights and percentages of recycled content. Nearly 40% of the cotton which enters textile industry gets wasted prior to conversion into a garment (spinning, weaving and garmenting stages). Estimated 75%+ of post-consumer waste goes to landfills, incinerators or generally pollutes the environment. After sorting, accessories such as buttons, zips etc are separated from the fabric and fed into a machine which shreds the fabric into yarn and further into raw fibre. The raw fibre is then spun back into yarns for reuse in other products. The recycled fibre (length and uniformity) will not have quality values equal to the original which can limit the end-use application.

Printed tote bags are a popular choice as an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic bags but also as a purposeful style choice to showcase a brand. Printed tote bags are chosen for a number of reasons including product launches or to sell at retail. Following the plastic bag reduction legislation, the cotton tote bag has grown in ubiquity and moved retailers to produce their own branded cotton tote bags as well as given away as promotional gifts.

What is a Recycled Cotton?
Cotton tote bags usually has no fastenings and is made of a strong fabric such as cotton or canvas. If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly bag our organic cotton tote bags are an excellent choice and are manufactured from sustainable cotton. Tote means to carry and the term started to be used to describe a bag in the 1900s. The cotton tote bag was perceived to be easier to carry than luggage and in the 1950s they began to enter the common culture. In the 1960s the tote bag was adopted by the fashion industry and bags began to take on style as well as functionality.
