How Recycled Polyester is Made

Recycled polyester is made by shredding used plastic—pre- or post-consumer plastics, or a mixture of both—into small, thin chips, which are processed and eventually turned into pellets. Those pellets are then melted and spun into yarn, which is ultimately woven or knit together to form a fabric.

Misconceptions

→ Recycled polyester is made only from plastic bottles.

Incorrect. While plastic bottles still make up most of the recycled material used to make recycled polyester, RP can also come from other sources, like fishing nets, plastic containers, and packaging.

Calculating how many bottles were used to produce a garment or product is not an accurate representation of the material used because there is no guarantee it is made solely from plastic bottles.

→ Recycled polyester is not as durable as conventional/virgin polyester.

Incorrect. There is no difference between virgin/conventional polyester and recycled polyester in feel, durability, and performance.
