Local vs. Global - There can be no discussion when it comes to recycled polyester

Sustainability and circular economy are the trends of our time.

Local vs. Global / lokal

To ensure our lifestyle and prosperity, the economy must be consistently oriented towards sustainability.

For polyester fabrics made from recycled yarn, there is only “one” sustainable approach: the material must be collected locally, recycled locally, and processed locally.

Nowadays, recycled polyester yarn is made from PET bottles. This recycling process is significantly more energy-efficient than the production of polyester from oil and also reduces waste that would otherwise end up in nature. For these reasons, fabrics made from recycled polyester are the fastest-growing category of articles at GOF.

We exclusively use recycled yarn from European production and process it in our own knitting and finishing plant, 100% in Germany.

Here are the main points of our offer for you:

  • Certified post-consumer PET collected in the vicinity of the recycling plant
  • Collected and recycled in Europe
  • Short transportation routes
  • CO₂ compensation: For each roll of “RETeX+”, our afforestation partner PLANT-MY-TREE plants a tree, and already over 5000 trees have been newly planted on an area of 13,500 square meters
  • 3 photovoltaic systems (at each production site) with a total installed capacity of 2459 kW
  • Heat recovery system for the lowest energy requirement in textile finishing
  • Further energy-saving measures (LED lighting, modern machinery, energy-optimized capacity planning, etc.)

For our customers, this means:

  • Clear positioning for high-quality, sustainably produced fabrics from Germany
  • No mere greenwashing or certificate collection.
  • Security and transparency for you and your customers
