Prym Group, one of the major suppliers of fasteners and accessories to apparel and textile sector, unveiled two new eco-friendly snap fasteners, namely ecoWhite and ecoGreen, at the recently concluded Performance Days Exhibition in Munich. These snaps are the first eco-friendly alternatives available to different market segments of the apparel and textile industry including activewear, kidswear and babieswear.
Prym Fashion’s ecoWhite snaps are made from recycled plastic bottles without any use of crude oil or any associated processing. One recycled plastic bottle can produce 13 snaps. The ecoGreen snaps, on the other hand, are made from plant-based renewable resources, such as potato starch and help reducing fossil resources as well as greenhouse emissions.
Prym Group will also soon launch ecoBlue plastic snaps made from recycled ocean plastic.
