Eco-friendly sportswear can be made from recycled polyester. Recycled Polyester for activewear and sports clothes is usually made from old plastic bottles and fishing nets. First plastic waste is picked up and sorted out by type and color. Then, they are washed, crushed and chopped into flakes and then melted into pellets. The pellets are melted and extruded to make fiber which is processed into fabric, and the making of sportswear can begin!
Recycled polyester is a fast-wicking lightweight material for activewear and base layers. Recycled products reduce waste, and require less energy to produce than virgin fibers.
