T-shirts made from recycled materials have made it to the high-fashion world, and eco-friendly brands are a necessary need to change the way we buy our clothing.
Recycling is one of the most sustainable ways to live, whether it’s by reusing bags, throwing your plastic, paper or metal into a recycling bin or wearing products made with recycled materials.
PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) is the most common plastic found polluting our world! Most commonly used in water bottles, it is currently the number one plastic found in our oceans and rivers.
PET is a type of recycled plastic that can be crafted into fine yarns, and it can be woven just like cotton into a wide range of fabrics! Our blend uses 50% Organic Cotton and 50% PET, joining the best organic cotton with polyester yarn for a durable result, and a lot less harmful to the environment.
FFLTEES tailored t-shirts that use this material are a simple yet meaningful solution to help clean the environment. Recycled PET is resistant and high-quality, making for extremely comfortable custom fit t-shirts! The final result is a truly light and breathable garment that is proven to make you sweat less, also having anti-odor properties.
It takes 5 PET bottles to make an extra-large t-shirt! While this might not look like much, we believe that every action towards this cause and every change to achieve better production techniques are meaningful, and every bottle we can take out of the oceans is a victory!
