Valley Forge to Feature New Living Fresh Bedding
September 13, 2009,
Valley Forge Fabrics, with Lenzing Fibers, will feature its new Living Fresh bedding featuring Tencel+Plus on Sept. 22 during the Go Green Expo/Eco-Luxe media event in New York.
Late last month, the enhanced Living Fresh line was awarded honorable mention in the 1st Annual Art of Design awards by Veranda magazine in the eco-friendly category.
Valley Forge launched the line earlier this year, and five hotel companies are in the process of testing it, according to the company.
"Another wonderful aspect Living Fresh with Tencel+Plus is the ability to produce eucalyptus fiber while having almost complete recovery of the solvent," said Diana Dobin, senior vp of Valley Forge. "The world's supply of fresh water is becoming more and more of an issue. A major environmental aspect is the use of water when comparing Tencel+Plus Eucalyptus to other natural fibers. Tencel+Plus Eucalyptus fiber requires 100 times less water than traditional cotton manufacturing."
