Sustainable Products

Coats has a wide range of sustainable and eco-friendly sewing threads, yarns, zips and trims.

Coats EcoVerde is the first globally available 100% recycled line of premium corespun and textured sewing threads, delivering the same proven level of performance as the industry’s leading non-recycled threads.

EcoVerde threads help complete the loop for garments and accessories that already use recycled polyester fabrics or other eco-friendly fabrics or materials.

Waste plastic is collected from various industrial and post-consumer sources. Used plastic (PET) bottles are a significant proportion and an example of how this works. These are collected, sorted, cleaned, ground to flakes and then melted down and extruded into the fibre and filaments from which EcoVerde sewing threads are made.

Because it consists entirely of recycled plastic fibres, Coats EcoVerde has a significantly lower carbon footprint than virgin fibres.

Through our EcoVerde product range, Coats plans to remain an integral part of the recycled thread industry and to work with industry to develop further innovations and collaborations. We work with our customers to create more sustainable products to our mutual benefit, and the benefit of wider society and the environments in which we live. The full range of our eco-friendly product range of threads, zips and trims are featured on this page.

To ensure growth, now and in the future, it is important that we use resources efficiently and explore innovative solutions. We will use more sustainable raw materials and reduce our waste.

Looking to the future, we are also aware of the role that thread plays in enabling the deconstruction of waste garments for recycling, so we are exploring ways that we may be able to facilitate and speed up the reprocessing process.

Our journey towards a sustainable future continues today with the introduction of Coats EcoRegen.
