What are the environmental savings of RPET and RPP?
Almost every product has a manufacturing process that consumes energy and water, and produces carbon dioxide emissions and as such has an environmental impact.
Using RPET instead of regular polyester we use:
- 70% less Energy
- 86% less Water
- 75% less CO2
Using RPP instead of regular polypropylene we use:
- 88% less Energy
- 46% less Water
- 71% less CO2
In order to reduce the waste, we all have to make responsible decisions about which materials to use. For example, if we use five pounds of RPET yarn to make Waste2Wear fabric we can:
- Save one full gallon of gasoline
- Save enough water to provide drinking water to one person for five days
- Save the amount of greenhouse gas emitted while driving a hybrid car for almost 15 miles
