One plastic bottle
can take up to 450 years to decompose in the ocean.

What are eco towels?

Reducing the drain on the worlds resources, reducing landfill and plastic pollution, our eco towels are made in Australia with a recycled yarn called RPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) – which is made from plastic waste water bottles (80%) and fabric off cuts (20%).

"Over 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic has been made since its mass production began in the 1950s. Only 9% of this plastic has been recycled, the other 91% sits in landfill, floats in our oceans or has been burned. An estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic enters the ocean every year. Many animals mistakenly ingest plastic believing it to be a food source. This can cause injury, suffocation, starvation and often death. Plastic contaminates our air, land, sea and can enter the human body through the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe."

Each of our Australian designed and manufactured eco towels keeps approximately 20 waste water bottles out of landfill and our oceans, reducing pollution and protecting marine wildlife.

How are they made?

Bottles are selected, sorted and sent to PET recycling facilities. Here, they are cleaned (with labels and caps removed), then shredded into flakes. The flakes are then recleaned and quality controlled, removing all impurities.

 

Through a polymerisation process, the flakes are turned into PET pellets which are then passed through a spinneret, melted, and cooled into fibres. The fibres are then smoothed, stretched and compressed at a very high temperature to trap and bond their micro particles together. The resulting yarn is then placed onto reels ready to be woven into towels.

The towels are produced and our fresh and unique designs are printed on to them with environmentally friendly water based inks. Towel measurements are a great coverage at: 80 cm x 146 cm and are lightweight at only 0.55 kg.
