Did you know that Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour? Also, the average American throws away about 68 pounds of clothing and textiles per year. What to do? Embrace the ever-growing industry that makes clothing from recycled cotton and polyester! Our line of Playback recycled cotton T-shirts and sweatshirts is made from collecting post-industrial cotton scraps and plastic and glass bottles and sorting them by color. All materials are then broken down into fibers and spun into yarn. By creating colors from the original recycled component (like beer bottle brown and water cooler blue), not only are less chemical dyes used, but the colors are richer and more complex than conventionally-made clothing.
