The Summer Chaser sand-resistant beach towel is made of 85% post-consumer recycled polyester (rPET) and 15% nylon - completely sustainable fabrics!
What is recycled polyester?
Recycled polyester (rPET for short) is a type of yarn that’s produced from synthetic fibres. Recycled polyester is produced by recycling existing materials (like plastic bottles and packaging) but still has all the characteristics and performance as a regular polyester, making it a more sustainable fabric alternative.
How’s recycled polyester made?
Recycled polyester is made by crushing plastic products into small pieces. These small pieces are then processed into yarn, transformed into a fibre, and in the end—made into a fabric.
What are the advantages of recycled polyester?
Producing rPet takes 33% to 53% less energy than creating polyester from scratch. Also, rPet produces approximately 54.6% fewer CO2 emissions to the air than virgin polyester.
By using recycled materials to make things like these sand-free beach towels, at least some of the plastic waste produced doesn’t end up in landfills.
This premium fabric is not only resistant to sand but is also ultra-absorbent, quick-drying, and it comes in super fun prints! We print our towels digitally using sustainable water-based inks.
Our quick-dry, no-sand sustainable beach towels dry up to 3 times faster than an organic cotton terry towel and take a fraction of the space when folded.
