Polyester is naturally water repellent and performs well in the outdoors.
Bureo collaborates with fishing communities to keep hundreds of tons of discarded nets out of the ocean each year. Through this project, Bureo provides responsible end-of-life solutions for derelict fishing nets and provides supplemental income to partnering coastal communities.
Where We Are
We’re trying to decrease our dependence on petroleum as a source of raw materials, so we have dramatically increased our use of recycled polyester. After we ran the numbers this season, we discovered we’d used more recycled polyester than any other fiber. We like a fiber with a past.
Our goal is to completely move away from using virgin polyester by 2025.
