Under the umbrella of the Do Better; Be Better initiative, Re:create is a move to reduce and reuse the plastic waste generated by PET bottles. The idea is to reduce the use of virgin plastic and use polyester made with 100% recycled plastic. A basic Re:create t-shirt is made using recycled plastic from about 6-9 such bottles leading to a better cycle of recycling the waste.
How it’s done
Plastic bottles are first collected and shredded into pellets which are then spun into yarn.
The yarn is then used with another type of staple fibre (typically cotton) to weave the fabric.
This fabric is then used to create the Re:create line of products at our partner factories.
Each garment is typically made with 6-9 PET bottles and the typical fibre content of this fabric is 60% Cotton and 40% recycled polyester.
