EcoVeil by MechoShade was developed over six years with green architect Michael McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart. Constructed of a thermoplastic olefin-based yarn called EarthTex, EcoVeil is more than PVC-free and does not have any hazardous chemical components. Through a 'take-back' program, the product is also recyclable into new shadecloth fabrics or other materials without degradation.
