Bespoke recycled company branded t-shirts

Plastic Bottles RPET

It takes 5-6 plastic bottles to make one of our RPET recycled technical t-shirts or running vests. As a result of this innovation our fabric suppliers have recycled 14.2 billion plastic bottles so far, alongside avoiding 385 million kilograms of CO2.

Bespoke recycled corporate merchandise

Custom Recycled Merchandise

Whether it’s merchandise for a team event or products to stock in your store, recycled custom T-shirts are a great option. With low minimum orders and huge capacity, no job is too big or small.

Due to the high recycled polyester content in our wholesale recycled T-shirts and hoodies screen printing, transfer printing and embroidery are the best decoration options. These processes deliver the best results with simple designs, such as a logo or simple graphic.

If you’re looking to have a full colour photograph or similar printed onto your garments, our organic product range is more suitable.

Our recycled sportswear products are lightweight and breathable, making them perfect for sportswear.

Standard recycled sportswear 

Our recycled sportswear products are made from a combination of 100% recycled polyester and regenerated cotton yarn (the exact composition varies across the range). Our recycled polyester is manufactured using post-consumption plastic bottles, and the cotton yarn is derived from cotton waste from the cutting room, which is normally destined for landfill. 

Our market-leading processes allow for a soft-hand feel ensuring optimal comfort. This combined with the sports fit and lightweight breathable fabric ensures you can perform at your best without environmental compromise.

  • Best suited for placement prints (max print size 297mm x 400mm)
  • Screen printed or transfer printed
  • Quick lead time (around 2-3 weeks)
  • More economical (£)
  • Includes technical T-shirts, recycled hoodies, sweatshirts and more.
  • No minimum order

The benefits of using recycled plastic and regenerated cotton include:

This is a completely dry process – meaning there is no need for further dying.

Reduces the amount of waste going to landfill.

Avoids the CO2 emissions associated with growing and processing new cotton.

Reduces the amount of land needed to grow cotton.

Reuses plastic that would have otherwise ended up in landfills.

Recycled polyester sportswear environmental impact and transparency

Recycled polyester provides a great way to improve the environmental impact of your sportswear. Recycled polyester is an incredible innovation for recycling plastic bottles, and another step closer to resolving the plastic crisis. However, from an environmental perspective, it’s not 100% perfect as garments still generate microplastics during washing.

Microplastics are one of the unavoidable issues with ANY form of sportswear made from synthetic materials, recycled or otherwise (polyester, nylon, acrylic etc). 

In some instances sportswear is essential (if you’ve tried running an obstacle course race with a cotton hoodie in winter you’ll fully appreciate this), and when it is, recycled sportswear is a great option. However, if it’s not essential, we’d recommend using one of our organic cotton T-shirt options which are made from a natural material that doesn't generate microplastics.

If you’re unsure on which option is best for you, your article on organic cotton vs recycled polyester is a great place to start.
