With the growing awareness about the impact of plastic waste on our environment, more and more consumer prefer to purchase eco-friendly products. Now days, recycled polyester is gradually recognized and accepted by consumer and manufacturers, it is becoming frequently used in garment market.
Recycled polyester is better for the planet
Recycled polyester, also known as rPET, is nothing like the polyester we know about. Polyester, a non-sustainable synthetic fiber, derived from petroleum-based ingredients. Unlike polyester, recycled polyester made from plastic bottles. These post-consumer waste plastic bottles, collected and the processed by mechanical or chemical treatment, magically become eco-friendly fabric.
What’s more, recycled polyester is less harmful than traditional polyester. It has a significantly smaller carbon footprint than conventional. Recycled polyester uses less water and energy than it would to create virgin polyester. According to a 2017 research study, when manufacturing recycled polyester, although the quality of recycled polyester is almost as same as traditional polyester but 79% carbon emissions will be reduced compare to traditional polyester.
Why We Create Echo Collection
Echo Collection, that is our response to nature and earth. There are billion tons of plastic on our earth. Our delicate ecosystem is deteriorating due to plastic pollution. Here is the fact, about 11 million tons of plastic waste is entering the ocean every year, and millions of marine animals are killed by ocean plastic pollution. This figure could triple by 2040 if people do not take action.
Yvette Sports hear the howling for help from the depths of the ocean. We try to protect the environment and save the biological diversity from the aspect of plastic pollution improvement.
In order to do something for our overwhelmed earth, breaking the plastic wave, Echo collection comes into being.
Give Old Plastic Bottles a Second Life
We decided to give plastic bottles a second life. Plastic is the raw material of almost all synthetic activewear. Recycling and reusing is a wonderful thing, Yvette believe recycling is one of the most important ways to reduce the environment impact of garment industry. By using post-consumer used plastic bottles, we prevent them from being discarded into the ocean and landfills.
Every six plastic bottles collected, one sports bra or leggings can be produced. So far, we have recycled about 1,199,120 water bottles. We're always on the way to remove plastic waste from our earth.
How to turn old plastic bottles into clothes?
The collected post-consumer waste bottles will be washed and crushed at first. After a series of chemical reaction, we finally get a recycled polyester yarn--which is the main fabric of our recycled activewear.
