Go Green!

Rhode Island Textile’s "Go Green" initiative is aimed at protecting the environment by making better use of natural resources and working for the good of the global community. 

Eco-Friendly Materials
We use a variety of eco-friendly materials, including Recycled Polyester and Organic Cotton. These are great alternatives to chemically-based or synthetic fibers and can be used in many products including drawcords, shoelaces, lanyards, webbing and more.  
 
Our Ruffin'It One World line features 100% Recycled Polyester and 100% Organic Cotton dog collars and leashes.  Click for more information.
 
Our Ad Specialties Division features custom printed options for lanyards, leashes and dog collars, made using eco-friendly materials. Click for more information.
 
Recycling Efforts
Preserving the environment is a company wide commitment at Rhode Island Textile Company. We continue to expand our recycling efforts and actively pursue new ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. 
 
We are pleased to announce our recycling results for 2009.
