Business:Management & Marketing
Eric Roosen, owner of Star Sock, explains to Toby Webb how ocean waste can be regenerated into yarns for making socks. With a business selling over 25 million socks a year, Roosen outlines how the company’s exclusive Econyl yarn is made from recycling old fishing nets, and then used as part of the fibre mix in StarSock’s range of products. He also argues the case for better collaboration – pointing out how his own business could only develop once it had established effective links within both the waste industry and yarn spinning sector.
