To do our part, Garden Garb Apparel fabrics are made from 50% recycled plastic bottles. Our process gathers used plastic bottles, cleans, color sorts, washes, and then shreds the bottles into small flakes. These flakes are then melted and extruded into fibers used to create polyester yarn which is woven with other materials into the fabrics we use.
The other materials we rely on are organic cotton, upcycled cotton scraps, and TENCEL™ Modal (beech trees). By combining these materials, we can produce apparel that uses less oil and water, eliminates the use of pesticides, gives scraps a new life, and focuses on sustainably managed natural resources that will live on for generations.
