Recycled Polyester: Why We Love This Sustainable Fabric

You might be thinking cotton, but it actually could be the culprit behind your sweat stains after beach volleyball. Although cotton is breathable, it won’t keep you dry. 

Plus, it impacts the environment negatively too. According to Panaprium, cotton requires a ton of water to thrive, and uses toxic chemicals in pesticides, fertilizers, and dyes throughout the production process.

A great alternative is polyester, which features lightweight fabric, and moisture-wicking magic. It’s found in most eco-friendly clothing brands, which is why Greenpeace reported that nearly half the world’s clothing is made of polyester. 

On the downside, it’s derived from plastic. As noted in Fashion United, The NGO Ocean Conservancy reported that 8 million metric tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean every year. 

To alleviate this issue while creating high-quality planet-friendly fabrics, we launched our Toward Ever Better initiative, committing to 90% sustainable products by 2025. Think smarter supply chains and recycled polyester.

So, what is recycled polyester?

Nicknamed as rPET, this fabric is extracted from existing plastic, using less resources and keeping plastic from heading to the landfills or ocean. And, you can find it in our Adapt and Virtue collections, which you can explore below.
