1

Plastic bottles are picked up & shipped overseas to be sorted by type & color

2

After sorting, the labels & caps are removed. The bottles are then washed, crushed & chopped into plastic flake

3

The plastic is then dried, melted down & pushed through a sive to create long strands of plastic thread

4

The thread is then heated & stretched to bond the fibers together

5

The fibers are torn apart to create plastic fluff which is the raw substance used to create polyester & finished yarn
