Go Green

Our “Go Green” Initiative Is Aimed At Protecting The Environment.

South Carolina Elastic Company’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, woven tapes and more.

Shoelaces include:
Boot laces
Athletic laces
Dress laces
Bulk laces
Bulk elastic
Waxed shoelaces

Recycling Efforts

Preserving the environment is a company-wide commitment at South Carolina Elastic 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 2016.
