At least 60 million plastic bottles go to landfills each day in the U.S. alone. Since 2009, AJ Nonwovens has been helping to reduce that number and protect the environment with our Eco-fi fiber.

Fabrics made from Eco-fi fiber are chemically and functionally almost identical to those made from nonrecycled fiber. The difference is Eco-fi fiber is made without depleting the Earth’s natural resources. With properties such as strength, softness, shrink-resistance, and colorfastness, market applications for Eco-fi expand every day.

Leading manufacturers have given their endorsement to Eco-fi as the fiber of choice for delivering exceptional technical qualities to their products. Our supply of recycled PET is received with product certification and specification test data. This ensures the criteria for 100% recycled PET fiber and the quality level of the material are met. Supplier certifications are available upon request.

Eco-fi is a PET fiber made with up to 100% recycled purified plastic bottles. It can go into any textile product including clothing, blankets, carpets, wall coverings, auto interiors, home furnishings, and craft felt. Eco-fi can also be blended with other fibers, like cotton or wool, for enhanced qualities.

Our manufacturing process keeps billions of plastic PET bottles out of the world’s landfills each year by using recycled PET plastic bottles instead of virgin materials in the fiber manufacturing process. By doing this, we lower harmful air emissions and save millions of barrels of oil from being used, which, in turn, reduces the harmful effects of acid rain, global warming, and smog.
