Moss Implements Fabric Waste Recycling Program
Moss' Elk Grove Village plant is now recycling all fabric waste that is generated during the production process. Scrap fabric is collected, baled, and stored at the plant. Once there are bales enough to fill a truck, the fabric is shipped to a textile processing plant where it can be re-purposed.
Moss’ Fabric Product Manager Elissa Decker touts the program; “We are committed to recycling all waste streams and are very proud to recycle production waste fabric, including printed textiles. Recycling polyester fabric helps save oil and energy while reducing green house gases by lessening the need for new raw materials.”
Moss also recycles all factory waste aluminum, paper, and cardboard materials with an ultimate goal to generate zero landfill waste.
In addition to minimizing landfill waste, Moss also leads the industry with its focus on recycled polyester fabric development. Moss currently offers six of its most popular styles in a green option. These options are affordable, typically costing only 5-10% more than the non-green version.
Moss is proud of all its green initiatives including:
• Working closely with our suppliers to improve efficiency and seek out green alternatives whenever possible.
• Recycling plant waste, cardboard, paper, plastic, aluminum and fabric whenever possible.
• Implementing Lean manufacturing practices that target waste reduction.
• Promoting continual, eco-friendly improvements from the Moss Green Team.
• Staffing a LEED-approved professional to assist our clients seeking LEED credits.
