About recycled plastics in fabrics
Once reserved for wintry fleece and other outdoorsy garments, fabrics made with recycled plastics now are used to make a wide variety of clothing and accessories. Thanks to advances in recycling technology, plastic containers can be converted into light, airy textiles that are perfect for fashionable dresses, blouses, shirts, and skirts. From Gucci to H&M, some of the biggest names in fashion—and their stylish customers—have embraced recycled plastics as the new go-to materials for on-trend clothing and accessories.
