Recycled polyester is a synthetic fiber. It is made by recycling plastic water bottles, post-industrial waste, or other post-consumer plastics. Compared to virgin polyester, its properties, usage, and maintenance are almost the same as virgin polyester. But recycled polyester is much more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Here are five clear describes why recycled polyester can substitute for virgin polyester.
Recycled polyester has the same quality as virgin polyester. Even though the making process is different, its strength, warmth, wrinkle-resistant, elasticity, waterproof rating, consistency, heat resistance, and color fastness are the same.
As our Polyester staple fiber products, we offer both Recycled polyester staple fiber and Virgin polyester staple fiber to our customers in various industries such as non-woven, mattress, toy, apparel, furniture, etc.
Recycled polyester is made from plastic water bottles and other plastic wastes. It can reduce energy use by nearly 60%, carbon dioxide emissions by 32%, and water consumption by 90% when compared to virgin polyester, which is made from a chemical reaction combined with Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and Monoethylene glycol (MEG)
According to one of the eco fabric wrapping brands.
Recycling 1 ton of polyester waste saves 5.7 square meters of landfill area. Recycled polyester 1 kilogram (made with 100% post-consumer waste) can keep 60 water bottles out of the landfill.
Recycled polyester is made from used plastic bottles that have been carefully collected, cleaned, pounded, melted, polymerized, and finally spun into yarn. The output is a safe and clean recycled polyester fiber.

As a plus, many brands use recycled materials to add value to their products and gain more customers' attention because their product choices can protect the environment.
Recycled polyester has a more stable and economical price than virgin polyester. Due to its raw material, the cost of plastic water bottles, post-industrial waste, or other post-consumer plastics is lower than petroleum products.
In terms of stability, the cost of recycled polyester is more stable.
The cost of petroleum products depends on petroleum demand at that time, making its price uncontrollable.
