Quiksilver unveils fleece collection made entirely from plastic bottles and recycled polyester
Quiksilver has unveiled a new sustainable fleece collection as part of the brand’s Made Better environmental commitments to create products that make as little impact as possible on the planet.
The polar fleece is made entirely from plastic bottles and recycled polyester, and comes in a range of bright block colours, and also features bold and eye-catching tropical prints.
Priced from £18-£150, the collection features designs that are archival Quiksilver prints from the 1980’s, which the brand refers to as "the golden age of artistic and loud prints".
Quiksilver has focused on using recycled plastic bottles since the breakthrough of this fabric technology and to date has reused almost 250 million bottles that would otherwise have gone into landfill.
This new range represents the brand’s ongoing dedication to seek out ways of manufacturing that are more sustainable and eco-friendly to benefit everyone.
By 2030, the brand aims to be regenerative: sustainably producing 100% of its goods and services, and be climate positive thanks to the Mountain & Wave Regeneration Program.
A series of organic cotton fleeces will also be released at the same time using natural mineral dyes for colour, available across shades including green, blue, navy and grey.
