Polartec, the producer of innovative and sustainable textile solutions, has introduced its Eco-Engineering™ initiative to use recycled and biodegradable materials across its entire product line.

The collaboration combines CiCLO® technology with Unifi’s innovative yarn products to promote biodegradation of polyester and nylon, as well as applications in polyurethane, in seawater and landfill conditions. The goal is to create the world’s first fully recycled and biodegradable fleeces and breathable waterproof membranes, as well as other knits and insulation fills.
