YKK, which has saved millions of plastic bottles from landfills in past 5 years with its materially recycled Natulon zipper, will begin its production in Macon, Georgia, further reducing environmental impact from sourcing the products overseas and reducing lead time. Natulon zippers are products made from PET bottles, old fibre and other polyester remnants. Ten thousand Natulon zippers of 60 cm length recycle approximately 3,600 plastic bottles (29 g/bottle). The materially recycled zippers are Bluesign certified, said YKK.
