RECYCLED PET CHIPS
Saving the planet.
One pocket at a time.
Sustainability is a core value, guiding current and future product developments. Regarded as pioneers within our industry, our goal is to be 100% Sustainable by 2030.
All of our objectives today have a focus on upgrading our products, making them 100% sustainable with a circular approach where possible.
THE ENCORE COLLECTION:
ENCORE Products are divided into 4 categories:
ENCORE 1.0 – Recycled Polyester
ENCORE 2.0 – Recycled Polyester + Organic Cotton.
ENCORE 3.0 – Recycled Polyester + Recycled Cotton.
Polyester is not currently economically biodegradable. Technological advancements continue in the research of natural methods of decomposition of man made fibers. We will continue to work within our supply chain to reuse and recycle polyester from post consumer waste. Plastic bottles are a leading source for recycled polyester. Sustainable sourcing is the first step of the Circular Economy.
OUR GLOBAL IMPACT
In 2022 we used 86 million plastic bottles.
(Approximately 3 bottles = 1 yd. of pocketing)
The 86 million bottles were turned into 28.7 million yards of pocketing.
111.6 million pairs of pants currently have our recycled ENCORE pocketing.
