Environment protection problem concerns Welon

Pesticide, wasted plastic bottles are damaging the environment where we live. In resent years, governments and associations around the world are making great efforts in environment protection. Welon(China) LTD., as a responsible corporation, is answering the call of time by developing environmental friendly fabric.


RECYCLED PET(RPET) more detail
 
Why Recycled PET makes sense
Approximately 31% of plastic bottles produced in the United States are made from a material called PolyEthylene Terephtalate, "PET" or "PETE." Usually clear or green, the plastic is mostly used for consumer goods such as soda bottles and
food jars. According to the National Association for PET Container Resources (NAPCOR), in 2005 United States manufacturers produced 5.075 billion pounds of PET products. Such a high production rate makes finding uses for post-consumer plastics imperative. If the current rate of manufacturing and consumer recycling remains, 40 billion pounds of PET waste will be added to our landfills within only a decade.
Recycled PET Lifecycle
PET is recycled after consumption. After consumer recyclables have been collected and sorted by type at recycling centers, PET products are crushed, pressed into bales, shredded, and refined into PET flakes. These flakes are transformed into the raw materials that innovative companies transform into new products.
Welon's RPET serie caps are made of 65% cotton, 35% RPET. A perfect combination of comfortable and environmental freindly.
ORGANIC COTTON more detail
 
Cotton covers 2.5% of the world's cultivated land yet uses 16% of the world's insecticides, more than any other single major crop.Other environmental consequences of the elevated use of chemicals in the non organic cotton growing methods consist of:
High levels of agrochemicals are used in
the production of non-organic, conventional cotton. Cotton production uses more chemicals per unit area than any other crop and accounts in total for 16% of the world's pesticides.
Chemicals used in the processing of cotton pollute the air and surface waters. Residual chemicals may irritate consumers' skin.
Decreased biodiversity and shifting equilibrium of ecosystems due to the use of pesticides.
Organic cotton is generally understood as cotton, from non genetically modified plants, that is certified to be grown without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides. Its production also promotes and enhances biodiversity and biological cycles. In the United States cotton plantations must also meet the requirements enforced by the National Organic Program (NOP), from the USDA, in order to be considered organic. This institution determines the allowed practices for pest control, growing, fertilizing, and handling of organic crops. As of 2007, 265,517 bales of organic cotton were produced in 24 countries and worldwide production was growing at a rate of more than 50% per year.

Welon's organic cotton serie caps are made of 100% organic cotton. Slightest harm to the environment.
