Recycled polyester?

Why recycled polyester?

When compared to conventional polyester, recycled polyester production generates 79% less CO2 emissions and significantly reduces the global textile waste.


We present our perspective on polyester

Polyester is a versatile fabric that offers durability, wrinkle resistance, and easy maintenance, making it ideal for various clothing items such as leggings, sweatshirts, shorts, and more.

However, one drawback of using virgin polyester is that it is sourced from oil, coal, or natural gas, which contributes to the depletion of our planet's valuable resources.

In order to address this environmental concern, Jain has made a commitment to substitute all virgin polyester with recycled polyester in our products.


The comparison between virgin and recycled polyester


In the past, polyester was solely derived from nonrenewable sources like oil. However, our focus has shifted towards utilizing 100% recycled polyester. A notable advantage of recycled polyester is its ability to be reused without compromising the quality of the end product.

By incorporating recycled polyester into our products, we not only prolong the lifespan of non-biodegradable materials, but also reduce the amount that ultimately ends up in landfills or the ocean.

Remarkably, recycled polyester possesses the same appearance, quality, and functionality as virgin polyester, all while emitting approximately 50% less CO2. Additionally, it adheres to the same rigorous cleaning and safety standards.


Challenges with Recycled Polyester


The utilization of recycled polyester helps reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, but there are challenges in making it widely accessible at an affordable cost. Frequently, environmentally friendly products tend to be pricier.

At Jain, we are committed to addressing this concern by enhancing the economic feasibility and availability of recycled polyester products to a wider range of consumers.


Commitment to recycled polyester


Jain's dedication to recycled polyester is unwavering, our aim is to completely eliminate the use of virgin fossil fuels and transition solely to renewable or recycled materials.

To expedite this shift, we are focusing on our activewear line, striving to substitute all virgin polyester with recycled alternatives.

Although we have not yet achieved our 100% objective, our advancements have positioned us as pioneers in the utilization of recycled polyester. We aspire to motivate other industries to embrace this sustainable approach.


Responsible sourcing


Our commitment to responsible sourcing is evident in our rigorous approach to procuring recycled polyester. We prioritize compliance with the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) and ensure that every step of the supply chain maintains traceability.

By exclusively partnering with GRS-compliant recyclers, we guarantee that social, environmental, and chemical standards are met. Additionally, we collaborate with esteemed organizations like Textile Exchange to enhance recycling standards and traceability, extending our impact beyond recycling centers.
