THE PROBLEM.

THERE'S OVERUSE OF SINGLE-USE.

1,000,000
plastic bottles
are sold globally
every single minute.

Only 30% of used
plastic bottles in the
USA are recycled.

It takes 450 years
for a plastic bottle
to degrade.

FASHION IS LIVING FAST & DYING YOUNG.

70 million barrels of oil
are used each year to
make polyester clothing.

107 billion units
of apparel were sold
globally in 2016.

3 out of 5
fast fashion items
end up in a landfill.

BUT...SCIENCE.

WATER BOTTLES ARE 
polyethylene terephthalate

POLYESTER FIBER IS
polyethylene terephthalate

SO. RECYCLE.

WE TRANSFORM PLASTIC BOTTLES
INTO RECYCLED POLYESTER.

Plastic bottles are collected from the east coast of the USA.
They are sorted, chopped up and melted in North Carolina
into high-performance textile fibers for Teddy Locks.
