For those of us who are trying to be more environmentally responsible, it is exciting to see that Gütermann Creativ has come out with a Recycled Polyester Sew-All Thread. The thread comes in a really nice assortment of colors.
What is really unusual and exciting about this thread is that it is made from recycled beverage bottles!
Around 1,100 yards of sewing thread (or ten 110 yard spools of the Recycled Polyester Sew-all Thread) can be produced from just one recycled PET beverage bottle. Those are pretty impressive numbers!
Gütermann says that the Recycled Sew-All Thread can be used for anything that their regular Sew-All Thread is used for. I tried the new thread out and it works just fine with my Singer sewing machine. I love that more companies are beginning to find new ways to use plastic bottles and keep them out of landfills!
