However, some manufacturers in the clothing industry are taking advantage of post-consumer recycling, which is using recycled plastic bottles, and melts them down into small chips or flakes, which are then spun into a regenerated polyester yarn. Another cool idea!
The key benefits of this process are:
- It reduces the amount of plastics going to landfill and plastic microparticles finding their way into our eco-system
- It reduces the energy that would be used in production of brand-new virgin polyester
