LOW-COST HAS A COST
When it comes to synthetic materials, recycling is undoubtedly a good thing.
But you have to look a bit further from what is written on the label.
As Nate Gelman from IBISWorldanalyst puts it “Our appetite for low-cost shirts, pants, and athletic wear made from synthetic fibres is far from satisfied by all the polyester manufactured from recycled materials and because fibre made from old bottles tends to be low quality, it needs to be blended with virgin fibre for strength. “
That’s why we here at Seasoned Traveler believe in natural materials.

PLASTIC NOT SO FANTASTIC
According to National Geographic, every time plastic is recycled, the polymer chain grows shorter, so its quality decreases.
The same piece of plastic can only be recycled about 2-3 times before its quality decreases to the point where it can no longer be used.
That’s why we here at Seasoned Traveler believe in nature’s hi-tech.
