Eco-Throw Sustainable Solution

ProTowels is now offering Eco2cotton® in their custom throws, in a line they are calling the Eco-Throw.

Eco2cotton® is already used as a sustainable option for many consumer and industrial products, and now it is making its way to the promotional products market.

The Eco-Throw offers an enormous 4s8″ x 70″, 48″ x 62″, or 36″ x 48″ messaging area and is made in the U.S.A. The customizable options with an item like this are nearly mind boggling, because you can create on it any three color art you choose.

For the hospitality industry Eco-Throws with images of spas, cruise ships, ski resorts, etc. For consumer brands like tea and coffee companies Eco-Throws of their labels as part of customer loyalty programs. School and College teams can use the Eco-Throw as a great booster item, especially for chilly football fans. As a fully customizable solution the Eco-Throw is only limited by the marketer’s imagination.

And how is the Eco-Throw eco-friendly? The Eco2cotton website makes the following important claims about the environmental benefits of their material:

  1. Reduces incinerator and landfill use, by reprocessing pre-consumer textile waste.
  2. Eco2cotton fibers require no new dyeing, saving water and adding no new pollutants.
  3. Eco2cotton fibers require no land use, intensive water irrigation, and no new fertilizers or pesticides.
  4. Eco2cotton simplified manufacturing process reduces energy and resource use.

As Eco2cotton explains the process, “pre-consumer fibers and clippings are collected after the cut and sew process, sorted by color and blended”. The resulting material can be used for anything from simple stuffing to spinning material for new yarns. “The regenerated fibers retain the color of the original recycled t-shirt or garment, so less dyes and harmful chemicals pollute our planet”.

Cool stuff.
