SAVING OUR SEAS, ONE CONSCIOUS TOWEL AT A TIME

The Cape Cod Towel Company depends on the incredible benefits of two environmentally conscious materials: recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) and organic cotton. These materials combine style with a commitment to preserving our planet.

Cape Cod Towel rPET

rPET

rPET, or recycled polyester, is a term used to describe a eco-friendly concept known as “upcycled plastic.” It’s like giving plastic bottles a second chance at life. By transforming theme into rPET, we’re taking a stand against waste and reimaging sustainability in a stylish way. Recycled polyester also offers similar performance characteristics to virgin polyester.

RPET SUSTAINABILITY BENEFITS

Circular Economy

Incorporating rPET into our products promotes the principles of the circular economy. It extends the life cycle of plastic bottles by transforming them into a new and valuable material.

Energy Savings

rPET consumes significantly less energy compared to the production of virgin polyester. By using recycled materials, we reduce carbon emissions and contribute to overall energy savings and a lower carbon footprint.

Conservation

Fewer resources are need when producing rPET compared to conventional polyester. It reduces the need for extracting new raw materials, such as petroleum.

Waste Reduction

Recycling plastic bottles into polyester fabric helps divert waste from landfills and oceans.

Environmental Impact

rPET reduces the emission of greenhouse gases and air pollutants associated with the production of virgin polyester.

REDUCED WATER USAGE

Recycled polyester production typically requires less water compared to virgin polyester production.

100% ORGANIC COTTON

Our beach towels and blankets are crafted with organic cotton sourced from the pristine Aegean region in Turkey. The cotton from this area boasts extra-long fibers, ensuring remarkable durability and longevity. As you wash your towel or blanket, it becomes increasingly soft and absorbent. The woven cotton fabric is not only lightweight but also dries much faster compared to traditional terry cloth towels.
