Textile Sustainability

Cradle to Cradle Life Cycle

Textile sustainability is important for the health of our planet. As concern about sustainability grows amongst customers, all are examining the sustainability aspects of their purchases even more critically. PLA is created from all-natural materials and degrades into the earth naturally. No matter how PLA ends up at the end of its life cycle, it will break down completely within a year, versus other plastics – which often will never truly break down.

Biodegradable, Reusable & Recyclable.

Not only is Impla™ completely biodegradable, which makes it compostable, but can be reused and recycled once its lifecycle as a product has been completed.

PLA has multiple end-of-life options including:

  • Recycle and reuse
  • Compost/biodegrade
  • Incinerate/renewable energy recovery
  • Anaerobic digestion
  • Feedstock recovery
