Are you usually thrown off when you read the word “polyester” on a garment? Well, you aren’t alone. This unsustainable, synthetic fibre is one of the most used fabrics in the world. Precisely, the fashion industry produces 8,323 kg of polyester every second, or around 240 million tonnes per year. A statistic we find alarming considering its negative impact on the planet, and non-biodegradable characteristics.
While we always strive to use natural fibres sometimes it’s necessary to use something man-made. In those cases, we make sure it is as sustainable as possible. This is why instead of traditional polyester; we have chosen the use of Recycled PET as part of our commitment to remove single use plastic from our product line (check out our Quick Guide: Komodo’s Journey Towards Zero Plastic).
