Become aware: reduce, reuse, recycle
The world population suffers an increase of 20% every 20 years, and with it also the demand for food and textile fibers. On the contrary, the sustainable area for these purposes is reduced with the increase of urban areas.
In 2019 the population worldwide is 7,700 (millions) of people and the annual textile annual consumption per capita e of 14.5 kg. If we intend to maintain consumption at current levels, by 2020 it will be necessary to produce twice as much cotton, double the population of sheep, generate twice as much cellulose to obtain artificial fibers and double of oil required to obtain synthetic fibers.
Given that these values affect only textile consumption, we see that it is not sustainable or viable.
Pages Valenti contributes to the sustainable industry
For more than 60 years Pages Valenti SA has worked with the objective of contributing to sustainable industrial development.
Less is more investing in the development of eco-efficiency in our production processes, we consume less natural resources and produce more.
Zero pollutants: by not using chemicals during our production processes we avoid any contaminating risks and contribute to preserve the environment.
Pioneers in reprocessed cotton: our company has been using reprocessed cotton since the 1970s.
Committed to sustainable production
At present, for every ton of yarn we produce, we avoid:
- Use 11.000 m² of land area which can be used for alternative crops (Zero erosion of land).
- Use pesticides: 16% of the pesticides used worldwide are used for cotton crops.
- 1.800 kg carbon footprint of CO2.
- Usar Use 3,000,000 liters of water.
How do we get recycled fibers?
The pre-consumed products rejected from the spinning, weaving and clothing production processes, selected and treated with the purpose of converting them into regenerated fibers, which we subsequently use to produce yarns.
Post-consumer textile articles that should be destroyed after their useful life are selected and treated with the purpose of converting them into regenerated fibers, which we subsequently use to produce yarns.
By reusing these rejected products, we contribute to reducing waste and pollution.
