The earth needs our love, so Urban Expressions sources textiles ethically to create purses from recycled materials. Instead of virgin polyamide (commonly called “nylon”), we use Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) polyamide, a more sustainable alternative, to create our collections of trendy handbags

Certified by the Textile Exchange, the manufacturing process for nylon recycling from material reclamation to finished product is closely monitored. Exploiting textile waste, discarded fishing nets, and other recyclables, RCS polyamide meets the Global Recycled Standard as established and monitored by the Textile Exchange. RCS polyamide also reduces Urban Expressions’ carbon footprint by decreasing the environmental impact of the processes involved in virgin nylon production.

Recycled Polyamide: The Sustainable Alternative

The use of reclaimed polyamide fiber is more sustainable than virgin polyamide for several reasons. The first reason is Urban Expressions’ carbon footprint. Fewer resources like water and crude oil are implicated in recycled nylon. Less energy is used to produce it. There’s also a concurrent decrease in waste, reducing emissions that provoke harmful greenhouse gas.

By using recycled fibers to create our vegan leather handbags, Urban Expressions joins a global effort to reduce waste. Recycling and repurposing these fibers reduces unwanted material that ends its life in greenhouse gas-producing landfills. This one factor serves to effectively create a safer world for all of us, especially wildlife. Preserving natural wildlife habitats and decreasing the environmental pollution that threatens wild spaces globally, nylon recycled from waste is the sustainable alternative.
