Our Pledges

The Martex Fiber team believes that textile waste does not belong in landfills because recycling is good for companies, the environment, and society. To help our suppliers and customers understand our full commitment to textile recycling, we have created the Martex Fiber Zero Landfill Pledge, which states that all of the textile waste we purchase will be recycled. This means that Martex Fiber ensures:

  • Complete downstream recycling of waste
  • Reduced risk to the environment
  • Reduced carbon emissions
  • Reduced land and water use for growing cotton
  • Reduced production of new synthetic fibers

As North America’s premier textile recycler, Martex Fiber firmly believes that recycled textile products are a benefit to our society and environment. As such, we only sell products made with recycled textiles. All of our recycled textile products and most of our reclaimed fiber products are 100% recycled. When you buy upcycled textile waste products from Martex Fiber, you can be assured that they contain recycled content, which is good for the environment. By purchasing recycled products, you are not contributing to production of new fibers, which reduces carbon emissions, as well as land and water use.
