Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Polypropylene and Acrylic.

PP fibres are made as co-product of oil refining. It is associated with comparatively low energy usage, medium-high fossil fuel depletion and extensive chemical process, it has comparatively low water pollution and global warming footprint. It is not biodegradable but it is  easily recyclable. So eco impact is low.

Acrylic fibre is made at least of 85% acrylonitrile, its production is related to fossil fuels depletion.  The manufacturing of this fibre also releases toxic fumes in the atmosphere. Acrylic fibres takes up to 200 years to biodegrade and acrylic items washed at home release high quantities of micro plastics that contribute to water pollution. So eco impact is high eco impact.
