How is Plastic Recycled?
At BeMona, we believe that creating quality activewear shouldn’t compromise the well-being of our planet. That’s why all of our comfortable, stylish, and practical sportswear is manufactured from recycled, safe RPET plastic water bottles to help reduce CO2 emissions and remove plastic from our oceans.
But how exactly does a simple water bottle get transformed into your new favourite pair of recycled leggings?
It all begins out at sea where plastic waste is collected from the ocean, helping to prevent damage to this delicate ecosystem and the creatures that inhabit it. After collecting as much plastic waste as we can, the bottles are then treated and cleansed to ensure that they’re safe for reuse, and then the manufacturing process begins:
- Bottles are shredded into tiny pieces so that they can be turned into yarn
- This yarn is then knitted together to form the fabric that makes up our activewear
- After the garments are created, we sell them to you to use and love!
And that’s not all; if you want to part ways with your old BeMona recycled clothing, we will recycle your items for free and create new garments with them! We know that you can’t single-handedly save the planet, but everybody can do their bit by supporting plastic recycling for a brighter future.
The Pros of Recycling PlasticThe pros of recycling plastic are truly endless when it comes to giving our world the helping hand it needs. Some of the top benefits are:
Less plastic waste has to be burned, which helps to reduce CO2 emissions and improve our air quality
Ocean wildlife can be injured or even killed by plastic waste in the ocean which can disrupt the entire ecosystem, so removing it helps to protect our planet’s creatures
When plastic is recycled, less plastic waste ends up in landfills which helps to lower levels of soil pollution
Recycling plastic helps to utilise our natural resources more efficiently by reducing the usage of new, raw materials, which would use considerably more energy than it takes to recycle
Plastic recycling doesn’t just bring about environmental benefits — the collection and manufacturing process helps to create more jobs to benefit workers and the global economy
