SAAM Textiles has started manufacturing fabrics using recycled polyester . Unlike virgin polyester, recycled polyester uses PET as the raw material. This is the same material that is used in clear plastic water bottles. Recycling these bottles to create fabric prevents them from going into landfills . The process of converting PET into recycled polyester requires much less energy than in case of virgin polyester. In fact it takes 33-35% less energy. The main advantages to recycled polyester are:

1) Using more recycled polyester reduces our dependence on natural resources(crude) as the raw material for our fabric needs.

2) Diverting PET bottles for this process reduces landfill, thus reducing soil contamination, air and water pollution .
