Swedish Stockings Recycling Club
Each year, two billion pairs of pantyhose are produced, worn once and then discarded. Swedish Stockings is on a mission to change and influence the entire fashion industry. MenoMieux wants to help Swedish Stockings clean up the hosiery industry and provide a better alternative to the way we create and dispose of modern pantyhose. You can help us by being a part of the only recycling program for tights worldwide.

HOW THEY RECYCLE
Swedish Stockings is working to close the loop and eventually be able to recycle old hosiery into new. In order to make that possible we need to be able to separate the fibres, the polyamide from the elastane, and at this the technology this commercially available.
However, they have an interim solution!
They collect and grind down old pantyhose to be used as filler material in fibreglass tanks. These tanks are used in the commercial industry to separate grease from water, such as at gas stations, at restaurants, etc. They are extremely hardwearing, lasting decades, and now contain your old pantyhose in them!
Glamorous? NO. Sustainable. YES!
As long as old pantyhose do not end up in a landfill, Swedish Stockings is committed to cleaning up the whole industry.
