Sanyleg's latest challenge is to increase the use of eco-sustainable yarns. Sanyleg started a collaboration with ECONYL by producing compression stockings made from recycled nylon. The process begins with the recovery of waste such as carpets, fishing nets, plastic waste stored on the ocean floor and in landfills. Through a process of regeneration and purification this material is reprocessed resulting in the obtainment of a new nylon with the same characteristics as the non-recycled one. For every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® raw material used, 70,000 barrels of crude oil are saved and 57,000 tons of CO2 emissions can be avoided.
