Non-woven rPET

Grounded’s non-woven rPET is made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester and carries Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification. Non-woven refers to the fact that the material is not woven in the traditional sense of interlacing yarns, rather it is bonded together mechanically or thermally. This results in a fabric that is strong, durable and is able to be re-used for 100’s of uses. It uses less water than most textiles and has a significantly lower carbon footprint than virgin polyester.

The Good

  • Considered more sustainable than traditional textiles made from virgin materials
  • Strong and durable. Suitable for repeated usage over long periods of time-
  • Significant carbon reduction from virgin textiles
  • Uses less water than natural fibre textiles
  • The recycling industry is a critical part of any functioning circular economy and by increasing demand for recycled materials to aids in the development of critical recycling systems and infrastructure
  • Generally more cost effective than virgin fibres and textiles

The Bad

  • Textile recycling is currently limited
  • It is not biodegradable or compostable and if it ends up in the environment it is likely to be there for many years before turning into biogenic carbon
  • Can have a more technical or synthetic look which can influence consumer perception of sustainability
