BACKGROUND

For more than 50 years, Sunbrella has recycled acrylic manufacturing waste and delivered it to partners who repurpose the materials into industrial products, including felt, insulation, padding, filtration, and more. In addition, all packaging waste is recycled at Sunbrella manufacturing facilities. This is an ongoing journey for Glen Raven, and eco-friendly practices like these have been an important focus in the company's history, even before it was on the minds of most consumers.

To bolster these efforts, the Recycle My Sunbrella and Recycle My FIRESIST programs were created to allow domestic consumers to participate in the recycling process. These are unique take-back programs that offer a sustainable alternative to disposing fabric scraps, awning covers, boat covers, and upholstery fabric for both Sunbrella and FIRESIST.

The Recycle My Sunbrella program alone has collected nearly one million pounds of fabric that otherwise would have ended up in landfills, and Glen Raven has set a goal to help its customers recycle an additional one million pounds of products by 2025. Taken together, these environmental initiatives reduce waste and help sustain our planet.
