Sustainable Post-consumer Recycled Polyester Lanyards

What is Post-consumer Recycled Polyester?

Polyester is the world’s most widely used textile fibre. Virgin Polyester uses energy-intensive processes and is derived from non-renewable resources, petroleum and oil. It is not biodegradable, and unless recycled, ends up in our landfills or, worse, our oceans. Post-consumer Recycled Polyester is made from plastic waste collected from our oceans and landfills, such as plastic bottles, packaging, textile waste and fishing nets.

Why choose Post-consumer Recycled Polyester Lanyards?

It can take hundreds or even thousands of years for plastic to decompose. The plastic that ends up in our ocean breaks down into microplastics. These microplastics poison small organisms like plankton, the fish that eat the plankton and so on. Microplastics work their way up the food chain until eventually, they reach us.

Because Post-consumer Polyester is made from recycled plastic waste, when you choose our Post-consumer Recycled Polyester Lanyards, you’re making a sustainable choice by supporting the collection of plastic waste from our oceans and landfills that are then re-used.

Are there any differences between Virgin Polyester and Post-consumer Recycled Polyester?

There is no difference in performance or quality when comparing Virgin Polyester and Recycled Polyester. Post-consumer Recycled Polyester is made by crushing the collected plastic waste into fine flakes, purifying and re-polymerising it, and creating the polyester chips treated in the same way as virgin polyester. They are spun into fibres and then woven or knit into fabrics. Polyester is loved because it is long-lasting, wrinkle-free, and easy to clean.
