Re-Processing and Re-Thinking (02:59)
Giant blades shred organic sacks. The shreds are ripped apart and packed into bales. Sack fibers and carpet fibers are cleaned and sent to storage hoppers.
Air Laying (02:24)
Recycled cotton is highly absorbent because air laying creates lots air pockets. The air-laid fibers are rolled to compress them and passed through a bath that contains a latex solution. The factory uses fewer resources by recycling heat.
