RECYCLED FABRIC INFORMATION
Recycled nylon (ECONYL®) is made from nylon extracted from carpets destined for landfill, fishing nets and pre-consumer waste. Every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® raw material saves 70,000 barrels of crude oil and avoid 65,100 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, that are generated with new nylon production.

Recycled polyester is produced from polyester extracted from plastic bottles that would have otherwise have ended up in landfill or in our oceans.
These materials now have a second life to be loved by you! The fabrics have a luxurious feel and very comfortable to wear due to their stretch.
Not only is all of our fabric recycled, but we also use every single piece of it! All offcuts are kept and sorted through. The larger usable pieces are used to make premade items and all smaller pieces are sent to be recycled, meaning there is zero fabric waste!
The elastic used in all of our products is made from soft cotton and natural rubber, meaning that it is plastic free and biodegradable.
All of our packaging is eco-friendly! Our mailing bags and postal boxes are compostable, our 'EDGY JAYD COLLECTION' stickers are made from recycled paper and are both recyclable and biodegradable! The white tissue paper that we use to loving wrap your orders is biodegradable, and doesn't use dyes so there is less impact on the environment. Any tape used is eco-friendly too, as it is plastic free, made from recycled materials and is both recyclable and biodegradable.
All our garments are hand made to order by us, so no waste items go to landfill. Fair wages are involved throughout the manufacture process of our garments.
To achieve carbon neutral status, we donate to plant trees to offset our carbon footprint. In addition, we plant a tree for every order placed! To see how many trees we have planted, click HERE.
