With REO-Trust®️ Project, REO-ECO says no to recycle polyester fraud

Being a vertical Recycled Polyester Mill, REO-ECO would like to ensure authentic recycled polyester materials, by its transparent & vertical set up, to global brands who are marching strongly into recycle polyester materials by 2025.

Therefore, we are excited to announce our partnership with TUV SUD for the REO-Trust Project.

Initiative of JOINT PROJECTS:  Lab tests expose recycled polyester fraud

Based on an article published on Apparelinsider [*] :

Virgin polyester is being substituted for its recycled counterpart in fashion supply chains – and on a significant scale. [*]

This long-held rumour has been confirmed by a leading German laboratory after blind trials testing recently. [*]

The tests revealed that some of the clothing items had zero recycled content, while those that did contain recycled polyester had significantly less than advertised on the label. [*]

The supply chain of textile product is very long, and the supply chain may involve a wide range of geographical areas. Ensuring the reliability of the recycled material source and the product traceability in every supply node are essential for the accuracy of the recycled content claim on the final product.

Why REO Chooses to Partner with TÜV SÜD ?

Recycled Content Certification by TÜV SÜD

Simple Steps to Identify Real or Fake Recycle Polyester
