Fashion is a billion-dollar business, making it one of the most lucrative and profitable industries on earth. However, it is also the second most polluting industry in the world, just behind the oil industry.
Most activewear items are made using either polyester or polyamide/nylon and some kind of elastic fiber such as elastane, spandex, or Lycra. This combination creates moisture-wicking fabrics perfect even for physically demanding and high-impact activities. Unfortunately, since synthetic fibers are produced using fossil fuels, their production directly impacts greenhouse gas emissions.
As a major player in the activewear/athleisure fashion wholesale industry, Mono B recognizes this challenge and is ready to face it head-on. Instead of using virgin polyester or virgin nylon fibers, Mono B uses discarded polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and post-industrial/pre-consumer scraps of nylon, recycling them and regenerating them into activewear. Thus our new line, Mono B GREEN, was born.
We've sourced our 100% recycled polyester from Jiaren, one of the few companies in the world able to infinitely recycle polyester fiber without causing the loss of quality by using ECO-CIRCLE™ technology.
Our 100% recycled nylon fibers are GREENLON® nylon yarns that save energy up to 8.5% and water up to 84%, whilst reducing up to 77% of CO2 emission.
The result is Mono B GREEN, a sustainable, earth-friendly collection, without compromising Mono B's hallmark high-quality and affordability.
