Care

caring for recycled polyester

wash up to 30 degrees (this is always the most sustainable choice when using a washing machine) and use a fabric bag to keep your items from breaking because of zippers. to avoid microplastics from floating to the oceans, use a guppyfriend washing bag.

what is recycled polyester?

most often recycled polyester is made out of industrial waste or post-consumer plastics like PET bottles. turning PET bottles into clothing means grinding, melting and extruding new fibers.

why love recycled polyester?

taking what is already there and giving it new life is super cool already - but recycled polyester is also super versatile! from waterproof bags to silky smooth fabrics you can do so many things. 

recycled polyester production

producing recycled polyester uses up to 90% less water than regular polyester. still you have to be careful and only choose certified recycled fabrics. we think there are pros and cons with this fabric.  the main pro arguments: keeping plastic away from landfills and the ocean and a waterproof and stretchy fabric - just like polyester, but uses less energy to make. still, recycling has its boundaries and recycling uses a lot of energy too. also, recycled polyester can still release micro plastics.

underprotection is based on the firm belief that sustainability and fashion can be united. the founding team started this label over 10 years ago and set out to create desirable, wearable, and comfortable pieces. but apart from this goal they have one guiding principle: sustainability. to the 'underprotection' team this is not a trend, it's a mission, a philosophy, and a steady process. this is a brand that knows that one can always do better and therefore constantly works to improve its sustainability approach. this starts with the materials they use, which are 100% sustainable, certified, and most of them vegan approved.  it continues with the packaging, paper, and polybags being either compostable, biodegradable, or recycled. furthermore, they live sustainability by minimizing and reusing as much as they can, as well as taking used 'underprotection' products back from their customers as part of their 'take back' program. last but certainly not least 'underprotection' exclusively works with certified factories to ensure that their beautiful products are produced under fair working conditions and pay fair wages to their manufacturers.
