RECYCLED POLYESTER Every fibre counts: Recycled Polyester saves resources and decreases emissions. Using more sustainable materials such as recycled polyester is one way we seek to improve our environmental footprint while still making high performance products for the athlete. Recycled polyester (PES) is a synthetic fibre based on post-consumer waste, such as plastic bottles and used garments. The raw material is reprocessed and spun into fibres. Using recycled PES has many benefits over virgin polyester that is made from petroleum. It helps us reduce our dependency on petroleum, allows us to discharge less waste and and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
