Green Isn't Good Enough.
At Crypton, we believe that our lives are interconnected with our community and environment – and that the world we live in is of our own making. This philosophy drives every aspect of our business – from our people, plant and manufacturing processes to the research we conduct every day.
We continue to look at innovative solutions that will advance efforts to reduce our environmental footprint and offer consumers more responsible textile solutions. Today, we do this in a number of important ways:
• Investing in renewable energy and carbon offsets
• Testing and developing new, environmentally preferable chemistry
• Leveraging best practices and manufacturing technologies that consume less water and energy, emit less pollution and reduce the use of packaging materials
• Instituting recycling programs to transform 100% of our fabric scraps into shoddy
Looking forward, Crypton is committed to playing an active leadership role in the use of green materials, processes and practices throughout the design communities we serve.
Because that’s what Live Clean® is all about.
Crypton is committed to be as environmentally responsible as possible. With our new Crypton 2.0 technology, we’ve radically reduced our reliance on petroleum-based materials and reduced CO2 emissions. We’ve changed the moisture barrier so that more than 10% of the feedstock raw materials can be derived from renewable, farm-grown sources, including corn. These advancements are made without sacrificing Crypton’s performance, durability or recyclability.
The introduction of biobased content and the softening of our moisture barrier also bring about environmental advancements in our production process. It takes 40% less energy to produce our corn-derived materials than the petroleum-based alternative. Additionally, we’ve reduced CO2 emissions by improving our manufacturing efficiency, thus generating less greenhouse gas.
