Sears Adds Suits Made of Recycled Bottles
In May, retailers Sears will begin selling men’s suits made of fabric blend of wool and polyester spun from recycled plastic soda bottles.
Sold under the Covington Perfect brand, a complete suit will retail for about $250, according to Retuers.
Another eco-friendly aspect about the suit may appeal to eco-conscious business executives – the garment is machine-washable and can be put in the dryer, eliminating costly dry cleaning bills.
Teijin, a Japanese chemical company, makes the fabric.
In Japan, Teijin’s recycled fabrics go into suits sold by retailer Aoki.
In late 2007, Sears began phasing out packaging that contained PVC.
