As part of our overall commitment to conduct business in an environmentally friendly manner, Giant Printing continues to offer eco-friendly, innovative and sustainable products and services to our customers.
The cornerstone of that product offering is the Go-Green line of fabrics made from recycled plastic drink bottles, they are completely eco-friendly products. Go-Green fabrics are woven from post-consumer PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) fibers. The source for the PET is recycled plastic drink bottles. The process of recycling the bottles into fabric begins with sorting the bottles by color and the removal of any non-PET materials such as caps, bases and labels. The PET is then washed and ground into flake. The flake is heated and extruded into fiber, which can be made into yarns of different types depending upon the type of fabric being made.
The yarns are woven or knitted into fabrics which can be made into an infinite number of finished products such as carpet and clothing, industrial strapping, rope, upholstery fabrics, boat sails, automotive parts, fiberfill for winter jackets and sleeping bags, and construction materials, to name just a few.
