From Bottle to Runway

It takes most plastics 450 years to decompose, some even 1,000 years.  Waste2Wear, a Dutch company based in China, is reducing plastic pollution by creating fabric from PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) plastic bottles. Plastic bottles are recycled into safe and certifiable non-toxic polyester yarn. The yarn is created into Waste2Wear® fabric by itself or is blended with other sustainable fabrics to manufacture clothes. Monique Collignon Couture Light uses 70% of Waste2Wear fabrics in her women's clothing line that was recently featured at Mercedes-Benz Amsterdam Fashion Week.
