Using recycled PET, a product made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles, we are aiming to achieve what we can do to minimize the impact on the environment and to benefit humanity.
Fabric processing of recycled polyester is similar to fabrics made from virgin polyester yarns. Product performance is equivalent or even superior to virgin products. The recycled PET is woven with spandex to create a COOLMAX® performance fabric, resulting in the ultimate workout pants that are breathable, comfortable, moisture wicking and quick drying.
This product reduces:
•The need for landfill space
•Demand for dyes and fixing agents
•Demand on oil, every 1 ton of recycled PET yarn can save 6 tons oil
Resulting in less pollution and energy savings (more than 80% than virgin products)
Not only are we helping to keep plastic out the ocean but we also use proceeds from our I Am Water leggings to give towards I AM WATER Ocean Conservation.
I AM WATER Ocean Conservation was founded in 2010 by passionate ocean lovers who acknowledge that mankind and nature cannot survive without each other. They believe ocean degradation is fundamentally due to human disconnect, and the way to change the course for our oceans is engaging and educating individuals on their role for a healthy planet.
Our blue planet may be divided by continents, but it is united by oceans. For the more than seven billion people on our rapidly growing planet, solving the challenges to our shared, sustainable future relies on the knowledge of individuals along with the conservation of resources. They provide global opportunities to engage and educate ocean-users with the world beneath the waves and to understand their personal opportunity to protect the planet.
