Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Polyester and Polyurethane.

Polyester fibre is manufactured using comparatively carbon intensive non-renewable sources and involves an extensive chemical process. It is associated to microplastic releases in water during after-use care. It is not biodegradable but is recyclable. So eco impact is high.

Polyurethane Plastic manufacturing has a comparatively low impact on fossil fuel depletion, eutrophication and global warming footprint. It can be easily recycled through chemical or mechanical recycling. Polyurethane plastic being long lasting contributes to widening lifespan of items that adopt it as material. So eco impact is relatively satisfactory.
