Fleece jackets and bottles

Published on: Last updated:

The plastic with which most water bottles are made is chemically very close to the polyester used in the textile industry. The recycled plastic content of 3 bottles can make a tee shirt and that of 15 bottles a fleece jacket. In 1993, the American outdoor clothing company Patagonia started selling fleece underwear, mountain coats and surf shorts made from post-consumption plastic bottles. In the last 13 years, Patagonia has recycled 92 million plastic bottles.
