DUVALTEX
CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES®

Biodegradable* and Ocean Waste

We created CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES® because, at Duvaltex, we believe that performance should never be limited by sustainability and that you shouldn’t have to choose between beauty and durability. That’s why we reuse discarded materials and reduce waste, setting new benchmarks for our industry. We set the highest standards in design and materials we use and continue to create and innovate so that together we can make a difference for our planet.

 

INTRODUCING A NEW COLLECTION: REFRAME, RISE, SHIFT AND EMERGE, DESIGNED FOR OPTIMISTS.

The rich, natural colors and thoughtful patterns invigorate us with a sense that things can be different. Using biodegradable technology, they send a clear message of design optimism from an end-to-end perspective. These fabrics can completely biodegrade at a rate similar to natural fibers (ASTM D5511 standard for biodegradability) in under four years*.

Introducing Reframe, Rise, Shift and Emerge – A New Collection For Optimists

*Rate and extend of biogradation into elements found in nature is 91% after 1,278 days under ASTM D5511 (Anaerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials Under High Solids Anaerobic Digestion Conditions). The test was done with the same component (PET) polyester and biocatalyst additive. No evidence of further degradation.

Change the facts.

55 million pounds of synthetic plastic textiles are sent to landfills every day in the U.S. alone. 1
Only 1% of all synthetic and plastic-based textiles are eventually fully recycled. 2

1) Advancing Sustainable Materials Management 2013, U.S. Environmental Agency. TextilesExchange.org Preferred Fiber Market Report 2016
2) According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 15% of textiles are reused/recycled at the first cycle, 7% at the second cycle and 1% at the third cycle. This results in 99% of our textiles eventually being landfilled.
