Recycled Hoses Project: Recycling hose via customers and VinyLoop®



A new garden hose with a low environmental footprint, consisting of a three-layer hose made from recycled and virgin PVC. The inner layer is made from recycled material collected from customers and processed by VinyLoop®, a middle layer of polyester thread maintains pressure resistance and the outer layer is made from virgin PVC with high resistance to chemicals and abrasion and is visually appealing. Customers are given a discount on the hose if they return their old hose for recycling. A Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) shows the Fitt garden hose saves 30% in energy, 30% in CO2 and 50% in water.
