To be turned into textiles, plastic bottles are dried and shredded into flakes that are melted and extruded into yarn, which is then spun into thread and woven into fabric rolls.

The SGS Green Mark verifies that products have passed a range of analytical tests to meet specific and quantifiable environmental attributes and claims.

The company delivers analytical testing to support specific, quantifiable environmental attributes that cover biodegradability, industrial compostables, recycled content, biobased and PVC (polyvinyl chloride)-free materials, and hazardous substances.

ARCH can now display the SGS Green Mark on its Magnif-ECO recycled fibre and in promotional materials and advertising to demonstrate to consumers that its environmental claims have been independently certified.

SGS global deputy technical head Eric Wang stated: “We applaud the advances ARCH has made in developing new and innovative fibres and processes that increase the use of recycled content.”

SGS has previously certified packaging products such as Celebration Packaging’s PFAS (per and polyfluoroalkyl substances)-free takeaway containers and Spark Sourcing’s eco-shell bio-calcium compound material.
