At SAAM Textiles, sustainability is an essential. We are now 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 consumes 33-35% less energy than in case of virgin polyester.
The main advantages of recycled polyester are:
- Using recycled polyester reduces our dependence on natural resources (crude) as the primary raw material for our manufacturing.
- Diverting PET bottles for this process reduces landfill, thus reducing soil contamination, air and water pollution.
