Bella~Dura® is the leading environmentally responsible fabric option in the marketplace. It is the only fiber on the market, synthetic or natural, that begins as a by-product of post-industrial waste and ends its life as a fully recyclable product. Bella~Dura® requires substantially less energy to manufacture, uses only a small amount of water during its manufacturing process and produces no harmful industrial waste.
Bella~Dura® fabrics have achieved a Silver certification and are classified as "preferred products" by MBDC (McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry). MBDC is known for their strict standards for products to place human and environmental health above all else.
Bella~Dura® is fully recyclable at the completion of its useful life. All Bella~Dura® yarn and fabric can be safely and easily recycled and converted into inert black plastic resin pellets that can be used in a myriad of products and industries.
