Press release, 16.05.2019
“Every industry needs to become more sustainable to keep up with the expectations of conscious consumers. Grand Hyatt Singapore has decided to be a front runner for the hospitality industry by incorporating recycled textiles in their garments for the first time and we are glad to collaborate with them to make this happen”
says Monique Maissan, CEO and Founder of Waste2Wear,
a company specialized in the production of textiles from recycled plastics.
“The switch to Waste2Wear aprons represents yet another chapter of our sustainable journey, and the perfect complement to existing sustainable initiatives such as our Food Waste Management Plant, sustainable beverages, Nose-to-Tail cooking methods, the use of sustainably sourced ingredients and more”
says Sebastian Kern, Assistant Director for Food & Beverage at Grand Hyatt Singapore.
The aprons are made from 7 used plastic bottles and use a groundbreaking technology by Waste2Wear called Econs-white® to produce white garments without using bleachers that would damage the environment. White fabrics have always been a challenge for recycled textiles as the plastic bottles used as a base tend to bring blueish tones to the garments.
“It would be a contradiction to use environmentally damaging chemicals to make a product from recycled materials”
says Jaimie Lim, Director of Waste2Wear for Singapore.
Waste2Wear is looking forward implementing more and more recycled products with Hyatt Singapore hotel.
