CERTIFIED 100% RECYCLED POLYESTER. THAT’S A GOOD THING.
All of our rain ponchos are made from 100% certified recycled polyester, which is very different from virgin polyester.
Unlike polyester that uses petrochemical products, loads of water and has quite toxic by products, recycled polyester uses PET (bottles) as the raw material. Recycling it so it doesn’t end up in landfills or the ocean.
Simplified: The bottles are flaked, heated, machine shrunk and then wound up in spools for making it into fabric.
This process uses up to 40% less energy... but the bigger differences here are that no new petroleum is needed, and that we don’t contaminate our environment with even more PET bottles.
A BEAUTIFUL & SUSTAINABLE FABRIC.
Rainkiss rain ponchos can be recycled. How’s that for sustainability…
The most amazing thing here is that the non degradability is actually a good thing.
Rainkiss rain ponchos create nominal waste, consumes limited energy and water, and causes very little pollution. In short: Rainkiss is sustainable and environmentally friendly.
