How do you make shirts from recycled bottles?

We work with a recycler to convert post-consumer plastic bottles into polyester yarns, which are then knit into fabric in Los Angeles. This process is possible because plastic bottles are made from PET, the same polyester variant used to make performance fabric.
 
Here's how the process works:
 
  1. Post-consumer plastic bottles are collected
  2. Plastic bottles are cut up into flake
  3. Plastic flake is melted down into chip
  4. Plastic chip is extruded into polyester yarn, with spandex added for stretch
  5. Yarns are knit into our custom performance fabric in Los Angeles

Is microplastic pollution something to be concerned about?

Yes.
 
While making fabric from repurposed plastic is a step in the right direction towards sustainable activewear, all polyester apparel can still pollute the planet through microplastics (little pieces of synthetic fabric that fall off when you wash clothing). These microplastics can make their way through wastewater facilities, and ultimately end up in the ocean.
 
However, GUPPYFRIEND® wash bags are an easy-to-use solution that address the problem in two ways:
 
  1. The wash bag protects your clothes from abrasion as they wash so they don't break down and shed microfibers
  2. The wash bag collects over 90% of microfibers that do fall off your synthetic clothing while being washed

We highly recommend you purchase a GUPPYFRIEND® for washing all of your performance clothes, and we are working to get our customers discount codes on GUPPYFRIEND® purchases.
