Sustainability

Aurifil also has a proud partnership with Plastic Bank which is a social enterprise headquartered in Canada.  Plastic Bank aims to clean up plastic waste from our oceans while providing valuable opportunities for people living in poverty.  Quilters, sewers, and crafters use millions of yards of thread every year to create quilts and other works of art.  As these threads are wound on a plastic spool this can generate a high level of plastic waste.  For more detailed information on sustainability please visit https://www.aurifil.com/sustainability
