WEAR NOT WASTE

A staggering half a trillion PET bottles are produced around the world, each and every year. Around 80 per cent of these end up in landfill where they take almost 500 years to break down. The good news is there is something we can do about it, today.

Recycling Wheel

Bottle Collection

The manufacturing process for eco-fabrics starts with collecting used PET bottles, before taking them to a recycling facility where they are pre-washed and sorted into piles of green and clear plastic. They are given a soapy bath, just warm enough to remove any labels.

Breaking it Down

Once the bottle is cleared of non-PET materials, it is ground into flakes which are then melted to form small pellets.

Creating the Fibre

The small pellets are heated to create fibres which are then spun into yarn. We use only the highest quality filament fibres, which are longer, finer, and more durable…perfect for Dharma Bums activewear.

From Fibre to Fabric

The yarn is finally woven to create the high-quality eco-fabric we use in our recycled activewear

Each pair of leggings made using this process recycles 16-18 plastic bottles.

Together we’re making a difference.
