EcoSure Fibers Certified By SCS For PCR Content

Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), Emeryville, Calif., has certified Greenville-based Poole Co.'s EcoSure ® and EcoSure Wellstrand fibers to contain 100-percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) polymer. EcoSure -- used in apparel, fiberfill, nonwoven fabrics and wipes -- and EcoSure Wellstrand -- heavy-denier fibers used in cleaning pads, bedding and furniture, filtration products and roof ridge vents -- are derived from PCR polyethylene terephthalate (PET) packaging.

The National Association for PET Container Resources, Sonoma, Calif., says use of 100-percent PCR polyester cuts energy usage by 84 percent and greenhouse gases by 71 percent compared to virgin polyester use. In 2008, 1.451 billion pounds of PET packaging materials were sold for recycling.
