What is RPET?

Posted by Allan Goldberg on

What is RPET?

One of the fabrics we love from Royal Apparel is RPET which is an environmentally friendly fabric blend.

RPET stands for Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, or recycled PET. RPET is made from recycled polyesters, recycled plastics and pure, 100% organic cotton.

Furthermore, 90% less water is used in the making of RPET clothing, dramatically decreasing its negative environmental impact. Our products that contain RPET yarn are made using recycled bottles. The amount of bottles per style may vary.

Facts about RPET:

  • 51 billion plastic bottles go to the landfills annually
  • It will take 700 years before plastic bottles in landfills start to decompose
  • Recycling 1 ton of RPET containers saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space
  • RPET polyester fabric has a 50% lower carbon footprint than organic cotton

When buying RPET fabrics and apparel, you can be rest assured that it is a recycled material. Plastics bottles that are recycled would have ended up sitting in a landfill somewhere if it weren’t for this process or turning it into a fabric. The ease of mind of providing apparel to customers that is recycled is something we take great pride in and you will too!
