Evernu is reimagining how we make and buy apparel.
In the U.S. alone, 14.3 million tons of textile waste was created in 2015. While 2.3 million tons of it was recycled, the numbers could be much better. But the global textile and apparel industry relies on a vulnerable, resource-intensive supply chain that causes massive waste and environmental harm. It is one of the world’s largest producers of toxic environmental waste, affecting air, water, and soil resources. This poses major challenges for brands considering cleaning up.
Evernu transforms discarded garments into beautiful fibers and provides a solution to the problem of textile waste.
Evrnu purifies cotton garment waste, converts it to a pulp, and extrudes it as a pristine new fiber for the creation of premium textiles. It is finer than silk and stronger than cotton. Their patent-pending technology creates products using minimal virgin resources and generates no waste, bringing us one step closer to a waste-free future.
