Recycled Polyester (RPET)
RPET stands for recycled polyethylene terephthalate, or recycled PET. This versatile fabric is created by breaking down discarded plastics often found in our oceans and recycling them into textiles and clothing.
Recycled Cotton is textile that is created by using old cotton clothing and textiles which are blended into a new cotton fabric.
But cotton is a natural fibre which means it's sustainable right?
Naturally grown cotton might seem sustainable but unfortunately the truth is far from it! Virgin cotton requires a high volume of water to grow, in addition to this, cotton farmers often use fertilisers and pesticides that are harmful to the environment and are often times even to the farmers spraying the chemicals onto the cotton.
