Montauk Tackle's performance clothing is built with American made recycled sustainable yarns. Using recycled polyester reduces waste, energy consumption, and freshwater usage. Our American made yarn partner converts 4 – plastic bottles into every one of our sun shirts, giving you all day long 50+UPF protection.
Benefits to using recycled sustainable polyester yarns for 50+UPF sun shirts:
- Environmental Sustainability: Recycled polyester yarns are made from post-consumer waste such as plastic bottles, reducing the amount of waste in landfills and oceans. Using these yarns in the production of sun shirts reduces the need for new materials and conserves resources.
- UV Protection: 50+UPF sun shirts made from recycled polyester yarns provide excellent protection against harmful UV rays. This is important for people who spend a lot of time outdoors or in the sun.
- Durability: Polyester is a strong and durable material, making it a great choice for clothing that needs to withstand frequent use and washing. Recycled polyester yarns can be just as strong and durable as virgin polyester, ensuring the longevity of the garment.
- Moisture-wicking: Polyester has excellent moisture-wicking properties, which means it can wick away sweat from the skin, keeping the wearer dry and comfortable during physical activities.
Versatility: Recycled polyester yarns can be used to create a wide range of fabrics with different properties, including stretch, breathability, and water-resistance. This allows for greater flexibility in design and functionality, making it easier to create sun shirts that meet the needs of different activities and environments.
Overall, using recycled sustainable polyester yarns for 50+UPF sun shirts offers numerous benefits, both for the environment and for the wearer. It is a sustainable and practical choice that can help protect both people and our planet.
