Plastic, once seen as a miracle material, has a dark side to it, because once it’s released into the environment, it sticks around for a really long time, contributing to water contamination and ocean pollution, as well as harming wildlife.

Polyester is a plastic, which begs the question why are we designing and manufacturing polyester sports apparel, which will stick around for 1,000 years, yet may only be worn for a summer or two. 99% of its life will be spent underground in landfill where no one can see it.
