What is recycled polyester?
Recycled polyester (rPET for short) is a fabric that’s produced from synthetic fibres. Recycled polyester is produced by recycling existing materials (like plastic bottles and packaging) but still has all the characteristics and performance as a regular polyester, making it a more sustainable fabric alternative.
How’s recycled polyester made?
Recycled polyester is made by crushing plastic products into small pieces. These small pieces are then processed into yarn, transformed into a fibre, and in the end—made into a fabric.
What are the advantages of recycled polyester?
Producing rPet requires 33% to 53% less energy than creating polyester from scratch and produces an average of 54.6% fewer CO2 emissions to the air.
Using recycled materials to make things like our bikini bottoms reduces our plastic waste and prevents new additions to the landfill and oceans.
