* Higg Score of Usha recycled cotton fiber estimated for 1 kilogram.

Usha Yarns has undergone the 'Higg MSI' material lifecycle self assessment for our recycled cotton fibers and yarns. Usha recycling process was measured on raw material, waste, water, energy, emission and chemical usage to report overall environmental impact based on the Higg analysis tool. We utilized the Higg Product tool to compare Usha recycled fibers with other sustainable or cellulosic alternative fibers which are popular among product development and designing teams working for global brands.

We happily declare that the overall Higg impact score of 1 kilogram coloured knitted fabric is 18.36 for garments having Usha recycled yarns, is among the lowest as compared to other textile materials listed on the Higg Index, as it doesn’t need dyes or colorants. This score is specifically estimated for Usha Yarns raw material and spinning process (rotor, 250 DTEX-225 denier-24/1 Ne-40 Nm) while keeping other parameters standard at Higg MSI product module.
