About 140 million tons of plastic float in our waters and about six million are added every year. Something has to be done about that plastic soup and with our Stealth Series we want to make a small contribution. How? With a very simple recipe:
Collect plastic bottles made of PET – a plastic from the polyester family – wash out remaining contents, remove labels and lids.
<Sort bottles by color in a machine and decolorize them chemically, shred them afterwards.
Melt down plastic particles, pour them into small pellets and draw new threads from them.
No new yarn based on crude oil is created. What’s more: this polyester yarn is very light, can easily be processed into durable fabrics and is therefore perfect for our backpacks. This is how approximately 20 plastic bottles are turned into your new backpack.
