At Arctic Eco-Sno, we recognise the importance of addressing environmental concerns and reducing our carbon footprint. As part of our sustainability efforts, we have taken steps to incorporate recycled fibres made from discarded plastic bottles into our Motion Base Layer collection. By utilising recycled materials, we not only reduce our reliance on new petroleum but also decrease greenhouse gas emissions while conserving water and energy in the recycling process.
Our commitment to sustainability and the use of recycled materials demonstrates our dedication to protecting the environment and meeting the needs of our sustainably-focused customers.
The first stage in creating the recycled and sustainable fabrics lies in collecting the plastic. The plastic is collected from a number of sources including beach cleans, ocean cleans, and post consumer waste from events and venues.
The plastic is sorted and baled before being crushed into thin flakes. The flakes are in turn transformed into granules through a hot air process, they are then dried and projected into high temperature tubes to form a thick liquid.
This paste then passes through a dye filter and ends in a strainer creating filaments. These filaments solidify through their contact with air, they are then drawn on hot metal rollers to realign the polyester molecules perfectly, ready to form the sustainable fabrics.
Produced yarns are used to make the base layer of your dreams. Designed with movement in mind, and made with 78% recycled materials, our buttery-soft, light-weight, and tech-performing base layers promise to deliver unbeatable comfort, warmth and breathability.
