We believe waste is only waste when we don’t do anything with it, and see recycled polyester as a good sustainable option for our wardrobe.
When compared to virgin polyester, recycled polyester offers almost the same properties,
yet with significant environmental gains.
The most important advantage is the reduction of bottles in landfills.
Plastic bottles are reused in the fibre production process of recycled polyester and this in turn has major benefits for reducing contamination of the earth as well as water and air pollution.
It also means reduced use of petroleum which is used in the creation of virgin polyester.
Recycled polyester results in large energy savings (of up to 45%) during the fibre production process compared to virgin polyester. Choosing recycled polyester over its virgin counterpart also means a 20% reduction in water consumption and 30% less CO2 emissions.
To make sure the recycled fibres used are traceable, we use recycled fibres which are certified by the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) or Recycled Claim Standard (RCS). The GRS is most comprehensive and ensures requirements for social responsibility, environmental management and chemical restrictions are met.
