Macron Eco Fabrics are made with a thread which is 100% PET recycled polyester and is certified by Global Recycle Standard.
PET is a material made of oil or natural gas and can be 100% recycled, thus returning in the market in the form of new eco-sustainable products. In particular, the PET gathered after its first use is reduced in 2 mm chips and subsequently treated in order to obtain a thread that guarantees the same performance of a virgin thread. The thread does not lose its original characteristics during its treatment and for this reason may be repeatedly recycled. Last but not least, compared to virgin polyester, the PET recycled polyester has the advantage of requiring less energy during the production chain. For each produced shirt, 13 0.5 l bottles are recycled.
