    The hospitality industry has been working to improve its environmental credentials, improving its waste management, energy efficiency, recycling, and water use. Now the UK’s furniture, fabric and equipment supplier, Forbes Group is bringing some glamour to this important area with its latest fabric – EcoFab. Forbes’ chair covers, skirting, table covers, and cocktail covers are well-known for making a special occasion of any event and bringing the “wow factor” to parties, dinners, receptions and weddings.

    When made from Forbes’ EcoFab they can now help the environment. This revolutionary new fabric is made 100% from recycled plastic bottles. As a polyester fabric it has all the usual merits of being hard-wearing, crease-, stain- and shrink-resistant, machine-washable and needs no ironing. Besides which it shrugs off spills – useful in the party zone.

    Add to this its soft good looks, smart tailoring and a variety of designs, and you’d think it was already angelic enough. But the way it is made has not only kept plastic bottles out of landfill, it has consumed 53% less energy than conventional polyester. It’s making a real difference, here and now, helping the hospitality sector play a material part in protecting the planet.

    Who said caring for the environment had to be boring?
