Textile Destruction...Good for Our Clients & Our Planet
Watch our powerful shredders and shred technicians destroy defective backpacks from a major product line.
Textiles are everywhere and they are definitely not limited to just clothing. They can be found in carpet, bedding, blankets, curtains, tablecloths, and much more. Not to mention they can all be found in homes, commercial spaces, transportation, and the list goes on and on.
Unfortunately, textiles will often need to be destroyed:
To protect intellectual property against counterfeit items
Safely dispose of prototypes, out-of-date stock, and more
To safeguard a brand’s reputation against sale of items on the grey market (a market where the items are sold by 2nd party sellers with no authorization to do so…read more here.)
To get rid of damaged items from flooding or other acts of God that produce mildew, mold, and other damage
So, how do many companies get rid of their products? The answer is often wherever the trash or recycling truck decides to dump them!
What’s the problem with that?
Harm to Your Brand
Not using a safe and secure product shredder to dispose of unwanted textiles, could lead to your products entering the grey Suddenly your brand takes a hit due to reviews or customer complaints for products that never should have entered the market.
Help Promote Global Warming
These types of materials often fill up landfills and create a negative impact on the environment. Recycling textiles could help reduce global warming. Not only that but the recycled materials can be processed into new materials for reuse. Textiles can be repurposed into many different uses, including new textile materials, filling material for insulation, or recycling into paper.
Our shredders here at American Shredding can handle most any type of uniform or fabric. Depending on the fiber, we work with specialized mills to shred recycle your material and re-weave it into recycled fleece. Yes! We are upcycling when we can....green business is good business.
