If we had to pick a trend this year at CHA, it was definitely “green” and we don’t mean the color. Everywhere we looked we saw signs declaring “Eco-friendly” and “All-Natural”. It seems companies are really starting to get that consumers want less wasteful packaging, and crafting options that make our world a happier, healthier place.
Over in the Foss Manufacturing Company booth, we spied Eco-fi, a polyester fiber made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. You know, like from all those over-priced waters we’ve all been drinking!
Foss Manufacturing takes those bottles and creates fiber that can be used in myriad applications. Their promos boast that a 6′ x 8′ outdoor carpet saves 48 bottles from being landfilled, and a kids’ sweatshirt saves 17 bottles! We encourage you to look for products created with Eco-fi!
