Jimtex Yarns, as part of the Martex Fiber team, believes that textile waste does not belong in landfills because recycling is good for companies, the environment, and society. To help our suppliers and customers understand our full commitment to textile recycling, we are part of the Martex Fiber Zero Landfill Pledge, which states that all of the textile waste purchased by Martex Fiber will be recycled. This means that Martex Fiber ensures:

  • Complete downstream recycling of waste
  • Reduced risk to the environment
  • Reduced carbon emissions
  • Reduced land and water use for growing cotton
  • Reduced production of new synthetic fibers

As part of North America’s premier textile recycler, Jimtex Yarns firmly believes that recycled textile products are a benefit to our society and environment. As such, we only sell products made with recycled textiles. All of our yarns are made with recycled textile waste. When you buy yarn from Jimtex Yarns, you can be assured that they contain recycled content, which is good for the environment. By purchasing recycled yarns, you are not contributing to the production of new fibers, which reduces carbon emissions, as well as land and water use.
