Eco-Friendly Fabric Made from Ecofi
Ecofi is a high-quality polyester fiber made from 100% certified recycled PET plastic, used as part of many of our "green" textile products, including tension fabric display graphics, apparel and carpeting.
How are Ecofi and similar products made? Soda bottles and other PET plastic products are cleaned, crushed and chpped into flakes; then liquefied and extruded into fibers which are knit or woven into fabric products.
