Color-Fi, one of the leading producers of solution-dyed polyester fiber, has announced that it has received third-party validation of the recycled content claims for its recycled fiber products from UL Environment, a global leader in environmental evaluation and certification. In operation since 1984, Color-Fi is one of the largest North American producers of solution-dyed polyester fiber, specializing in custom-made fibers for a wide range of demanding applications in commercial, residential, and automotive industries. Applications include products such as paint rollers, carpeting and other textiles.
“This recent third-party validation of our recycled content claims is testament to Color-Fi’s ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility,” said Mark Bennett, president and CEO. “Recycled content is a key product feature for us. Having these environmental claims validated by UL Environment will help set us apart from those products that include unsubstantiated claims of recycled content.”
According to the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) “Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims,” clear, substantiated and specific environmental marketing claims help ensure compliance with the Green Guides currently under review by the FTC. The UL Environment claims validation process that Color-Fi underwent involved a review of documents and an on-site audit of the manufacturing facility. UL Environment claims validations are designed to give purchasers and consumers confidence in knowing that product claims are backed by UL, a trusted leader in standards development, testing and compliance for more than a century.
