From 2019 Apres will use fabrics derived from recycled PET plastics in all of its products. We've taken this step to do our bit to help reduce the huge amount of plastic ending up in our oceans.
PET plastics are used mainly in the production of single use plastic containers such as bottles. These plastics are made using plant matter and as a result have been marketed as a 'green product'. The reality is anything but. PET plastics still take more than two lifetimes to decompose and are just as toxic to marine life.
The time to act is now and Apres hopes to lead by example in its attempt to promote a reduction in the consumption of single use plastics.
