ION sees it as a responsibility to minimize the ecological footprint and takes action in all business areas. ION contributes to this overall mission by processing material waste, reducing printing materials and extending the entire product life cycle by developing high-quality accessories designed for long-term use.
For the all-new Core Boardbag collection ION partnered up with Waste2Wear®. The result is that the new boardbags on Core level feature recycled materials from retrieved plastic waste.
Post consumer bottles are collected from different locations around the world.
The bottles are washed and shredded into small flakes after removing labels and caps.
The flakes are melted and filtered to remove any remaining impurities and then formed into pellets.
The pellets are melted again and extruded through microholes to make strands of yarn.
The yarns can then be woven or knitted into fabrics that can also be mixed with natural fabrics like cotton.
