- ECO BLUE™ at a Glance
ECO BLUE™ by the Numbers
Continue to evolve the business since 2007
In addition to engaging in all areas of the supply chain, from the handling of yarn to the sale of the finished product, in 2019 Chori partnered with recycled pellet manufacturer Utsumi Recycle Systems Inc. to tap into the pellet business―an upstream recycling process―and established its very own recycling facility.
Achieved an approximate 77% reduction in CO2 emissions
Producing yarn from plastic bottles reduces CO2 emissions from the raw material production process by up to 77% compared with the same amount of yarn made from petroleum (based on in-house estimates).
520 million plastic bottles recycled per year
Under the ECO BLUE™ initiative, approximately 520 million plastic bottles are recycled each year to produce plastic pellets and yarn. Through this initiative, which will have a profound impact on the future of our society, Chori will play a major role in reducing plastic pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
