While the finished fabric is free of byproducts, the process requires industrial solvents.
The Importance of a Closed-Loop System
Before there was ‘Flatten the Curve,’ there was ‘Close the Loop.’
Closing the loop means recovering the water and solvents used in the bamboo viscose process and using it again and again. Closed-loop systems reduce demand on local water resources and minimize pollution.
At YALA, we are proud to report that our manufacturing partners reuse 98% of their water.
Moreover, the process is mechanized to avoid worker exposure.
Progress is Everything
Through research, investment, and diligent effort, our manufacturing partners are making strides to close the final gap to a 100% closed-loop system. We are committed to making these improvements toward our goal of true sustainability.
Vote With Your Dollars!
So kudos to you, dear customer. We couldn’t close the loop without you!
Thank you for your steadfast commitments. Our family has appreciated your exceptional quality and consistency since way back when. I believe we placed our first order in 2006 (maybe 2007). Keep up the fabulous work! -Fred Hornaday, Bambu Batu
