RECYCLED POLYESTER

WE RECYCLE TO REDUCE WASTE

At Stanley/Stella we use recycled polyester to add sta- bility to our sweatshirts, strength to our accessories and sustainable aspects to our jackets. We have been using only recycled polyester, as op- posed to virgin polyester, since 2018. Studies show that recycling polyester allows for considerable energy savings in themanufacturing process (33-53%), and it is undeniable that tackling plasticwaste has become one of the major environmental challenges of this decade. Globally, about 450 million metric tons of plastic are produced every year and 9.5 million tons of plastic are thrown into the ocean annually, most of it single-use.

The Unisex Padded Hoodie Jacket enables the recycling of approximately 20 PET plastic bottles.
