Thermore, the Italian –based company that produces thermal insulation for garments, has announced that it has now taken the next major step towards sustainability by converting its entire Ecodown product line to fully recycled fibre content derived entirely from PET water bottles.

In a release, Thermore said that the move allows the reuse of a considerable number of bottles, which would have otherwise ended their useful life as waste in a landfill. Depending on the application, outerwear insulated with Ecodown can save up to 10 bottles per garment.

The company says that the new Ecodown 100% recycled thermal insulation does not require special quilting restrictions or fabrics and can be washed and/or drycleaned with confidence.
