Recycled polyester swimsuit, Weekday. Net bag, Granit.
Last summer, Dylan picked all this plastic from one of our favorite beaches in Biarritz, and there really was a lot. So this year, I’m going to continue this mission, and pick up all the plastic and waste I can find in nature, and recycle it.
Did you know that a PET bottle, for example, can become a swimsuit? Since 2017, Weekday make all their swimwear from recycled waste materials, like recycled polyamide and recycled polyester. This is a more sustainable option as it saves both raw material and energy.
Actually, the most common source for recycled polyester is PET bottles, while recycled polyamide is made from recycled waste, which can be everything from old fishing nets and carpets to waste from the manufacturing industry. Recycling prevents these raw materials from going to landfills, and the process also uses much less energy than it takes to create new virgin materials.
So, recycling plastic really does have its benefits.
