The impact of using recycled polyester
So let’s look at the bigger picture. How can the practice of using recycled polyester instead of virgin polyester make the world a better place?
The production process of recycled polyester does not rely on oil as a raw material. If the practice of recycling polyester was widely adopted, we would be able to ultimately decrease our reliance on petroleum and thus discourage its extraction from the Earth.
Using recycled polyester can also contribute to reducing ocean plastic and preventing plastic from ending up in landfills. What’s more, it can decrease the amount of plastic that’s being incinerated and releasing toxic gases into the air.
