Be Eco by Picchi
The brand Be Eco by Picchi®, has been created in year 2017 to mark a range of products with precise sostainable characteristics.
The Be Eco fabrics cover 3 fondamental requirments:
1) Sustainable fibers: Trasformation of waistage to become an industrial resource Using Recycled Fibers.
The Fabrics are made using at least 50% of Recycled Fibers.
Recycled Fibers are of 2 types:
Postconsumer (regenerated ) : used garments and rags arrive directly from consumers to specific centers that collect used garments, they are then divided into categories according to the predominated fiber and color, after the garments and rags get ripped and reconverted into coloured mechanical fibers, avoiding chemical substances eitherwise used through normal dyeing procedures for virgin fibers.
Preconsumer (recycled): waistage originated by the industrial textile production process reconverted into fibers. The Textile Industry has quite an elevated quantity of Industrial waistage (spinning waistage, weaving waistage, finishing waistage).
2) Sustainabile production process: The production circle of these fabrics is ecologically friendly to the environment with particular attention to:
minor usage of water sources , thanks to the use of special machinary and tecnology that have reduced 50% of the consumption of water . – depuration and recycling of water used during the production: the water used for our production circle are entirely recuperated (no water waistage) and depurated through specific deposits in collaboration with the Industrial City Hydro Organisation; once these are depurated they renter in the Industrial Hydro circuit to be reused again. –
Only Ecofriendly Chemicals All Fabrics are in conformity of the Reach European Regulation (Registration Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, Regulation CE n.1907/2006 of the European Parlament and Council, effective 1st of June 2007).
Reduction of Energy sources.
