Evrnu – creating the future of textiles!

“One person’s trash is another’s treasure.”

Textile and clothing recycling is a beneficial activity for both sides – we have companies which are providing us with needed clothes and on the other hand we have customers with specific needs, tastes and preferences. Each year we buy lots of new clothes which are more trendy or just because we like them, not because we really need them. People throw away their old clothes every year statistically each American throws away 37 kilograms of textile and clothing per year! Only 15 % of this number gets donated or recycled. Why shouldn’t we make it 100 % recycled?

Evrnu is a startup with specific social purpose. This company is registered in the State of Washington, USA. By 2014 Evrnu started collecting money from investors. Evrnu makes cotton recyclable. People create 12 millions tons of textiles each year. Millions tons of clothing are landfilled but soon it will only be a history.

Evrnu makes cotton recyclable, taking the millions of tons of garment waste and up cycling it into premium fiber for the use in new, high-quality garments.
