Recycled Polyester diverts plastic bottles from our landfills and turns them into your favorite pieces in your closet.
How Does It Work?
The collected PET bottles are sterilized, dried, and crushed into small chips. The chips are heated and passed through a spinneret to form strings of yarn. The yarn is wound up in spools. The fiber is passed through a crimping machine to create a fluffy wooly texture. This fluffy wooly material is then spun into yarn which is then knitted & blended into finished fabric.
How Does It Help?
Recycled Polyester, often called rPET, is made from recycled plastic bottles. By giving this waste a second life, we are helping to give an end-use to recycled plastics around the world & hopefully reduce what ends up in landfills & water supplies. We understand that this end-use is a single end-use, but currently, this is the best alternative that we have to conventionally made synthetics. By creating an industry for recycled goods, it helps to support recycling programs globally.
