Environmental Benefits


The Jimtex Yarns team works constantly to help the environment and to make sure our processes are as environmentally-friendly as possible:

  • By recycling textile waste, we help reduce incinerator and landfill use.
  • We do not use any wet processing, which means no runoff or water contamination.
  • We do not melt plastics, so no harmful chemicals are released into the air.
  • Our reprocessed cotton requires no land use, intensive water irrigation, and no fertilizers or pesticides. In fact, according to a study by Gail Baugh at San Francisco State University, recycled cotton uses less water, chemicals, dyes and energy than organic cotton.

Our yarns are certified for recycled content by SCS Global Services, so you can be assured that they are benefiting the environment. Learn more about our certifications here.
