Sustainability – NEW! Fabric Made From Vegetables

Revolution M+N Textiles has created the world’s first fabric made from vegetables. This revolutionary textile is produced with 50% renewable energy and causes 77% less CO2 emissions. Now that’s sustainability!

You might be wondering what the definition of sustainability is and what it really means. Sustainability for businesses means balancing environmental, social, and financial areas of the business. When corporate sustainability is practiced it helps to minimize negative effects on the environment and the community while still allowing the company to continue its operations.

M+N Textiles participates in sustainability by using renewable energy sources from the wind, water, sun and biomass. By doing so this reduces greenhouse gas emissions as well as CO2 emissions. M+N Textiles also takes steps to ensure any fabric returns, packaging, and production materials are recycled in a responsible manner.

M+N has developed a new glare control fabric called Revolution, manufactured from plants and vegetables. Revolution fabrics are made by extracting sugar from plants creating an eco-friendly material similar to polyester. The sugars are 100% extracted from annually renewable vegetable raw materials. These high quality fabrics are just as stable and durable as their polyester counterparts, only produced with far less fossil fuels. Here’s an example to give you an idea of how Revolution fabrics reflect sustainability. Replacing 25,000 square meters of traditional fabric materials with Revolution glare control fabric is equivalent to growing 210 tree seedlings for 10 years, fossil fuel savings equivalent of burning 3,837 litres of petrol, and lighting a 100 watt light bulb for 15 years.

Take a look at how M+N makes their revolutionary glare control fabric.
