In The Wash
Pretty Little Thing Black Jersey Top
Ultra fast-fashion brand, Pretty Little Thing, describes this 100% synthetic item (95% polyester, 5% elastane) as ‘Ready for the Future’ due to its recycled plastic bottle polyester content.
They claim it reduces the impact on the environment, but downcycling bottles to clothes is a false solution and a one-way ticket to landfill or incineration. They provide no evidence for their claims and do not specify how much recycled content is in the product.
Made from downcycled bottles
