THE SUSTAINABLE CHOISE
RUN | RECYCLE | REPEAT
More than 60% of our performance products are made from recycled materials from Italian suppliers. We have named this range of goods RUN | RECYCLE | REPEAT and will be categorized with a special green hangtag. These products are made with premium Italian polyester fabrics, which are recycled and transformed from old PET plastic bottles.
Recycled Polyester (rPET)
By choosing recycled polyester (rPET) we are able to deliver the same high technical performance in fibers as the normal DOXA products, but with a smaller environmental footprint.
Why choose Recycled Polyester (rPET) instead of Virgin Polyester (PET)?
Well - because the recycling proces reconstitutes the fiber on a molecular level, there is actually no difference between recycled polyester and virgin polyester. This means that performance and durability, benefits, including high strength and functional versatility of recycled polyester is the same as traditional polyester but with a lower environmental impact.
The simples pros:
- Recycled Polyester gives a second life to a material that is not biodegradable and would otherwise end up in landfill or the oceans.
- Producing Recycled Polyester is better for the climate, creating 75% less CO2 emissions that Virgin Polyester.
