Not all recycled plastics are what they seem, so checking for certifications is vital to ensuring the legitimacy of the material. The synthetic fabrics we source are GRS certified; an independent international full product standard, covering chain of custody (where the plastic comes from and who deals with it along the way), as well as social and environmental practices.
Between 4.8 and 12.7 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean every year. This doesn’t even account for the mountains of plastic that are incinerated or sent to landfill. Despite growing public awareness of the problem, the rate at which our societies produce plastic waste is not relenting, and there is so much already out there.
A material resource...not just pollution.
Plastic, polymer-based fabrics offer durability and high performance, extending the lifetime of a garment. However, they are extracted from petroleum, an unsustainable and finite resource. Producing fabrics made from recycled plastics reduces our reliance on fossil fuels, requires considerably less energy and water, and reduces air pollution.
Global Recycled Standard
Because you can't tell the difference between recycled plastic and virgin plastic, it's important to look for certifications wherever possible when you purchase.
