About the towel...
Made with an absorbent recycled yarn called RPET - which is made from waste water bottles and fabric off cuts. Importantly, each ECO towel keeps approximately 20 water bottles out of landfill and our oceans.
In years to come, when your ECO towel is old and worn out, return it to KE Designs and they will forward your old towel to textile recyclers and it will be made into new fabric or, carpet; reducing the drain on the world’s resources.
Aside from reducing landfill, the production of recycled RPET, has significant environmental advantages. It takes 20,000 litres of water to produce just 1kg of organic cotton. Recycled RPET has a 50% lower carbon footprint than organic cotton. It has also been found that REPET significantly sheds less micro particles than non recycled yarn, when washed (MISTRA). In addition, ECO towels are compressed at very high temperature to trap and bond their micro particles together, to help protect our oceans. However, we still suggest washing them with your other synthetic clothes in a filtering washing bag or, washing machine with filter to be cautious.
Printed with safe and environmentally sustainable water based inks.
