By utilizing upcycled cotton, Vustra reduces the number of wasted resources by re-spinning ground textiles down and producing recycled colored yarns through an advanced production process that ranks at the top of the MSI Higg-Index. Single-use plastic is a massive issue within the industry. The use of recycled polyester reduces the amount of waste typically delegated to landfills and oceans while also reducing Vustra's dependence on the oil industry. Additionally, the long-term effects associated with the use of virgin polyester and its toxic processes are substantially minimized.
