Econyl is a regenerated nylon yarn from the Italian recycling company Aquafil. It is made using both post consumer waste, such as discarded fishing nets, and preconsumer waste in the form of fabric scraps. The waste is collected from around the world and is treated in Slovenia in a closed loop system into 100% regenerated and regenerable nylon. As well as saving harmful ghost nets from the ocean, this method also uses 50% less energy than virgin nylon. In addition to that it reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 50% and entirely avoids the extraction of crude oil.
