The story of recycled polyester
Recycled polyester fiber, also known as rRPET, is made from recycled plastic bottles. It’s considered a sustainable fiber because its production requires fewer resources than what's needed to produce virgin polyester. It actually saves up between 33% and 53% energy and, as a consequence, it generates less CO2 emissions.
