CORBEL Recycled PET Polo Shirt Short Sleeve
The CORBEL Recycled PET Polo Shirt Short Sleeve is made from 100% RPET Fabric. What is RPET Fabric? RPET stands for Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, also known as Recycled Polyester. RPET fabric has a 50% lower carbon footprint than the organic cotton. Furthermore, compared with other synthetic fibres, RPET polyester fabric has almost a 90% lower carbon footprint than nylon, and 75% lower than polyester! Environmentally friendly, cost-effective and safe, the regenerated polyester fiber is made from recycled plastic bottles and performs equally as well as 100% virgin polyester.
Here are some facts about RPET:
90% less water is used in making recycled polyester versus polyester
RPET requires 70% less energy than virgin fibre production
Recycling one plastic bottle saves the equivalent of 3 hours of energy from a 60 watt light bulb
1 kg of RPET can keep 60 water bottles out of landfill
Using RPET helps us to not only keep plastic out of the landfills and oceans, but also to save our natural resources. It is easy to go Green with these beaut Polo shirts.
