RecyTex are a brand on a mission. Their aim is to divert non-recyclable materials from our oceans into activewear clothing and accessories, encouraging a positive end of life cycle for things like plastic bottles and fish nets. Their mantra is “The more garments we make the less pollution for the planet” and it’s hard to argue that really.
RecyTex sent me a number of products to review but it was their Softshell DWR Fleece Jacket which really stood out. I’ll be honest, on first view, I thought it looked an ok jacket, but once on, I was really impressed. Made from 100% recycled polyester, the jacket is warm yet breathable and fits perfectly coming in true to size. Priced at £95 I was a little hesitant at first, but it’s good quality clothing, using recycled materials which doesn’t come cheap. It has become my go to jacket for weekend rambles, which shows just how highly I rate it and I’d definitely recommend RecyTex to those who want to do their bit for the environment. A brand new brand for 2021 we hope to see RecyTex grow and grow, so please do give them a follow and give their garments a go!
