This Earth Day, GHCL launched "REKOOP" on Amazon.com. "REKOOP" bedding is made by blending cotton with polyester fiber obtained from recycling post-consumer PET bottles. The concept is sustainable, durable and free of any hazardous chemicals. Molecular tagging of the recycled fiber through the CertainT platform of Applied DNA Sciences in Stony Brook, New York, secures provenance and complete traceability across the supply chain.
The platform is designed to tag, test and track synthetic fibers to provide transparency, traceability and trust throughout the textile supply chain. Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), India's largest private company, is GHCL's fiber-manufacturing partner and supplies the truly ecofriendly recycled polyester fiber - Recon® Green Gold, which is used in REKOOP bedding.
The RE KOOP range of bedding products is meant for the ecologically conscious consumer who is making purchase decisions to support the environment and is supportive of initiatives which help reduce the carbon footprint. 36 PET bottles are used for the production of every 250 TC RE KOOP sheet set (60% cotton 40% recycled PET). This helps in the reduction of landfill space, crude oil consumption and carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
