“What is a
recycled tie?” you may be asking…
Recycled ties are made using plastic bottles that are
put through a recycling process and then spun into recycled polyester yarn. Although
ties have long been known as a mark of professionalism, recycled ties represent
so much more – they represent environmental awareness and a commitment to
helping the environment whilst maintaining the quality of standard polyester
ties limit pollution
In the UK approximately 13 billion plastic bottles
are used each year – plastic is ending up in places where it shouldn’t be and
it is causing harm. Vast amounts of plastic pollute our oceans, endangering
wildlife and entering the food chain. However, one of the great things about recycled
ties is that they prevent plastic bottle waste entering and pollution our oceans.
ties help reduce landfill waste
Only 50% of plastic bottles used per household are
recycled whilst the remaining plastic waste ends up in landfills – plastic takes
over 1,000 years to degrade! Each recycled tie saves an average of 2 plastic
bottles from landfill.

awareness within your business and is more likely to attract customers who
