Why are we doing this and how do we recycle your old pantyhose?

We want to close the loop and eventually be able to fully recycle old hosiery.  However, to make that possible we need to be able to separate the polyamide in the yarn (a.k.a the nylon) from the elastane (the stuff that makes it nice and stretchy) to make new pantyhose. Unfortunately, this technology isn’t commercially available just yet although it isn’t far away.

In the meantime, we have a short term solution. We are grinding old pantyhose down to be used as filler material in fibre glass tanks for oil and grease traps, in the commercial industry. These tanks are extremely hard wearing and last a long time, which is an amazing use of discarded pantyhose! Glamorous, no. Sustainable, yes! As long as they don’t end up in a landfill - we are committed to cleaning up the whole industry.
