Why we like recycling
Recycling is buzzing. From old tires to airplanes, we are getting better and better with recycling stuff and that’s absolutely awesome. Recycling means that we will need fewer virgin resources to create the same products and have less waste as a result of that.
We are not a big fan of plastic clothing at Iron Roots, but one thing that can’t be overlooked is the recyclability of certain plastics such as polyester. Wonderful projects like The Ocean Cleanup create the opportunity to turn plastic waste into great new products. However, we believe that this opportunity should not be wasted by creating clothing out recycled plastics. This will only create more plastic pollution due to the release of microfibers. Let’s recycle it for more durable stuff that doesn’t shed microfibers such as tables, chairs, medical equipment etc.
