Poole Company’s EcoSure® & EcoSure Wellstrand Fibers Receive SCS Certification

SCS Validates that EcoSure & EcoSure Wellstrand Fibers are Manufactured with 100% Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) Polymer Meeting the Highest Environmental Standards

Greenville, SC – June 7, 2010Poole Company – a leading manufacturer and distributor of recycled and virgin fiber products – today announced that Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) certified Poole Company’s EcoSure® and EcoSure® Wellstrand products as being manufactured from 100% post-consumer recycled polymer. This certification validates Poole Company’s global effort to provide fiber products and processes that meet the highest environmental standards, helping consumers make informed choices about the products they purchase. With EcoSure and EcoSure Wellstrand fiber products, customers can be SURE they are making a sustainable, earth-friendly decision.
Made for theenvironmentally-conscious consumer, EcoSure and EcoSure Wellstrand fibers are made from a base polymer of 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) PET packagingEcoSure quality fibers are used for apparel, fiberfill, nonwoven fabrics, and wipes while EcoSure Wellstrand heavy denier is used in scrub and floor cleaning pads, furniture and bedding, filtration products, and roof ridge vents.  Both fibers are certified by SCS as made from 100% PCR polymer, reducing the amount of wastethat burdens landfills and diminishes earth’s natural resources. Studies from NAPCOR determined that 1.451 billion pounds of PET (such as plastic soft drink bottles) were collected and sold for recycling in 2008, and the use of PCR polyester versus virgin polyester reduces energy consumption by 84% and greenhouse gas emissions by 71%.
