Evrnu is a new technology that is closing the loop on fast fashion. The technology takes cotton garment waste, breaks it down and purifies it. The pulp is extruded into a new fibre that is both fine and strong. The process uses 2% of the water that was used to make the original cotton garment and can also be used for some synthetic fibres that are notoriously hard to recycle. The company partnered with Levi’s to create the first jean recycled from 5 cotton t-shirts. The jeans will be commercially available in 2017.
