Did you know that 15 recycled plastic bottles (post-consumption) produce enough fiber for one E Legend scarf?
More to know about PET fiber from used PET bottles:
Decrease of the amount of plastic in landfills and oceans - Recycled satin gives a second life to a non-biodegradable material that would end up being disposed of in landfills or into the oceans. According to the English NGO Ocean Conservancy, 8 million tons of plastics are thrown into the seas every year, apart from the 150 million tons that already circulate in the maritime environment. If we keep up this pace, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
- The production of this recycled fabric requires 59 percent less energy, according to a 2017 study by the Swiss Ministry of the Environment.
