Polyester Reimagined: The Eco-Friendly Impact of Recycled Fabrics
If you are wondering if fabric is recyclable, the answer is that some materials are, and some aren’t. One of the most recycled materials is polyester. This is because polyester is created from polymer fibers – essentially plastic – that can be recycled similarly. The recycled polymer is then spun into recycled polymer fibers which in turn can be knit into recycled fabric.
Transforming Plastic into Sustainable Textiles
Recycled fabrics have the same properties as the same type of non-recycled fabric. Products created from recycled fabrics are more environmentally sustainable than the same type of non-recycled material. This is because recycled fabrics help to keep existing textiles and other recyclable materials out of landfills and reduce the need for virgin resources. Virgin polyester is sourced from crude oil.
Omniteksas’ Commitment to Recycled Polyester
At Omniteksas, we knit and weave our fabrics including recycled polyester. We encourage our clients to make sustainable choices for their products, and choosing recycled fabrics is one way to do that. The fashion industry is one of the major global polluters and selecting sustainably minded suppliers can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Reducing Fashion Footprint: Omniteksas’ Role in Recycled Fabric Innovation
Recycled polyester can be blended with other materials such as cotton, wool, hemp, viscose to create fabrics. These recycled fabrics can then be used the same way as regular fabrics. For example, recycled polyester can be made into jersey fabrics suitable for a variety of products, such as athletic apparel, T-shirts, athleisure, outerwear, and more.
Eco-consious consumers will appreciate products made by suppliers who choose to use recycled fabrics. Reach out to us to discuss your organization’s unique needs.
