The chemical compound used to make polyester fabric is identical to the compound used to make plastic water bottles – polyethylene terephthalate. This means that it takes polyester as long to decompose as it takes plastic bottles, which is decades. It also means that polyester is made out of crude oil, which depletes already strained, non-renewable fossil fuel resources. In addition, the manufacture of this fabric is linked to chemical pollution and danger to polyester production workers who are exposed to these pollutants that have been linked to health and reproductive products. All in all, if you can make a more eco-friendly fabric choice it will be beneficial not only to the planet, but to yourself.
