Recycled polyester fabric uses PET (polyethylene terephthalate) as raw material, and this comes from recycled plastic bottles which go to landfill. Recycled polyester uses 33-53% less energy than regular polyester, and it can be continuously recycled.
Recycled polyester also doesn’t require huge land to grow a crop or gallons of water like cotton for its production.
The reason recycled polyester (often written rPET) is considered a green option in textiles today is twofold. There is an argument that the energy needed to make the rPET is less than what was required to complete the virgin polyester in the first place, so we save energy.
Mindfulness of the environment using recycled plastic to make polyester reduces the amount of virgin plastic globally.
