DID YOU KNOW THAT OVER 11 MILLION METRIC TONS OF PLASTIC ENTER OUR OCEANS EACH YEAR?1
POST CONSUMER RECYCLED PLASTIC
By working together with our trusted manufacturers and suppliers, we can create our outerwear, backpacks, accessories and swimwear styles from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and help divert waste from ending up in our seas.
Conventional or virgin polyester comes from petroleum, a fossil fuel, which means a BIG price to the planet. And so, by creating Frugi styles using recycled polyester made from post-consumer recycled plastic, we are helping to reduce the amount of conventional polyester produced and the greenhouse gases when manufactured.
FROM OLD PLASTIC TO
We love our planet and try our best to protect it. We are so chuffed to be able to say that our swimwear, outerwear, backpacks, lunch bags & pencil cases have been made from post-consumer recycled plastic! Turning old plastic into something Frugitastic!
But how does this magic happen we hear you ask? Well, ponder no longer...
Plastic bottles are made of polyethylene (PET), a form of polyester that can be recycled. The plastic bottles have their caps removed and are given a good clean.
They are then shredded and processed into flakes, which are then cleaned and transformed into chips.
These pellets are melted and whizzed around in a spinneret to make strings of yarn.
This yarn is then woven into the fabrics we use to create our outerwear, backpacks, lunch bags, pencil cases and swimwear!
