ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY MOPS
Our mop yarns derive from recycled products. The cotton comes from spinning mills, and other post-industrial byproducts; Polyester fiber comes from post-consumer bottles for making fiber; and Rayon comes from opening post industrial non woven and post industrial products.
This means that all our mops are 100% recycled. we do not use virgin fiber in these mopheads.
Recycled does not mean lower quality or cheaper, with this process it produces long staple and short staple recycled fiber, it depends on the type/grade of waste and where it comes from. For higher end mops we use longer staple fibers, and for lower end mops we use the shorter cheaper fibers. The difference is not absorption but more durability, in some cases launderability.
