RadiciGroup has developed r-Radyarn® - a low environmental impact product made from 100% post-consumer recycled PET bottles. It is an eco-sustainable yarn ideal for applications in the technical sportswear and medical sectors. What is more, r-Radyarn® is a safe product, the result of a multi-stage process – from post-consumer bottle collection to reprocessing and yarn production – all taking place in Europe and monitored at every step.
The r-Radyarn® range represents a concrete example of company commitment to increasing the lifecycle of raw materials, reducing energy consumption and lowering CO2 emissions, as well as safeguarding the health and safety of people. The latter issue has recently been the centre of attention of the world of sport, football, in particular. Indeed, during the last few weeks, the European Consumers’ Organization (BEUC), after an investigation, warned against the presence of toxic substances, dangerous to the health, in the shirts of some teams participating in the 2012 European Football Championship. The results of the investigation, once again in the strongest terms, stressed the need for sportswear producers to have reliable suppliers. RadiciGroup has developed the r-Radyarn® range so it can offer its customers sustainability, high performance and safety.
The r-Radyarn® range is available in a variety of counts, colours and lustres, and in three different versions: textured, interlaced and taslan (POY and drawn versions of this eco-compatible yarn are sold under the r-Starlight® brand name).
