7th OCTOBER by RAINKISS / ECOLOOKBOOK
CERTIFIED 100% RECYCLED POLYESTER. THAT’S A GOOD THING.
The Amsterdam based fashion label, creates rain ponchos made from recycled polyester. This is very different from virgin polyester. Unlike polyester that uses petrochemical products, loads of water and contains toxic ingredients, recycled polyester uses PET (bottles) as raw material. Moreover, all those bottles are recycled and don’t end up on landfills or in our oceans.
The bottles are flaked, heated, machine shrunk and then wound up in spools for making it into fabric. This process uses up to 40% less energy... but the bigger differences here are that no new petroleum is needed, and that we don’t contaminate our environment with even more plastic bottles.
The fabric can be recycled again and again without compromising quality. That means RAINKISS rain ponchos could be a closed loop system. How’s that for sustainability? The most amazing thing here is that the non degradability is actually a good thing here. This closed loop technology has nominal waste, consumes limited energy and water, and causes very little pollution. In short: Rainkiss rain ponchos are sustainable and environmentally friendly.
