LILYSILK, one of the world’s best recognized silk brands, is commemorating World Environment Day with zero-waste efforts to promote a sustainable lifestyle that contributes to a greener, better world.
“We only have one earth, and it is important that we live in a sustainable manner that is in harmony with nature,” said David Wang, CEO of LILYSILK. “LILYSILK has always been committed to pushing for sustainable practices and initiatives and we are happy to invite more consumers to take part in it!”
The Free Recycling Program is a long-term project to recycle non-donatable LILYSILK textiles such as bedding, clothes, and sleepwear made of silk and cashmere as part of LILYSILK’s green and zero-waste activities. More than 150 units of material have been gathered and recycled as of the end of April. This number is growing by the month.
LILYSILK’s other creative and sustainable initiative is spun silk. Spun silk is formed by twisting short silk threads from damaged cocoons or discarded silk into yarn throughout the manufacturing process. Spun silk is less expensive than reeled silk and has all of the same characteristics. It’s silky and soft while also being antibacterial and anti-allergic, making it safe and comfortable to wear against the skin.
The brand also participates in the RE-LILYSILK pillowcase program, which recycles leftover silk fabrics. LILYSILK’s designers transform discarded linens into pillowcases in a range of shapes and color combinations. The RE-LILYSILK program enables discarded materials to be revived and recycled into one-of-a-kind, fashionable, and practical objects.
LILYSILK offers a number of initiatives to help people adopt sustainability into their daily lives. Customers will receive a product from LILYSILK’s “zero waste series” which highlights products manufactured from leftover materials, at random for each order placed.
