Clothed in bottles
Protective clothing can now be made of wood fibre and recycled plastic
EUROPE FairTrade-certified overalls made of recycled materials are now being produced by a number of companies.

Many sectors require employees to wear protective clothing and plastics are widely used. Modern plastics are light, have high tensile strength and are resistant to heat, cold and stretching. They ensure high comfort due to their low weight. The most commonly used fabric in the production of protective clothing is a blend of polyester and cotton, however neither their production nor their disposal is ecologically friendly. Nowadays the polyester used can come exclusively from recycling plastic bottles and industrial waste. While the cotton can be replaced by cellulose from renewable (Lyocell or Tencel) wood pulp PW Krystian is the first manufacturer in Poland which to produce category I protective clothing based 100 pct on ecologically sustainable materials. “Our ProEco collection is for technicians, machine operators and maintenance department employees. In the future we plan to expand the line to medical clothing and clothing for cleaning services. The line is exclusively produced from the TenCate Protective Fabrics, which is an innovative fabric based on environmentally friendly materials,” says Elżbieta Rogowska, the commercial director at PW Krystian. “The clothing is highly durable and can be cleaned in industrial laundries. It is also partially recyclable and some of its component materials can be reused,” she adds.
