Environmental Impact

Dropbear Outdoors Towels are one of the first recycled towels made from RPET, a soft and absorbent recycled yarn using recycled plastic bottles and fabric cut-offs. 

Soft and ultra absorbent, our mikrofiber towels are perfect for drying off at the beach or pool. Use at the gym or as a yoga mat! Compact, light weight and easy to pack. 

Reducing the drain on the worlds resources, Dropbear towels are made with a recycled yarn called RPET – which is made from waste water bottles and fabric off cuts. Each large Dropbear towel keeps approximately 20 waste water bottles out of landfills and our oceans.

Aside from reducing landfill, the production of recycled RPET, has significant environmental advantages. It takes 20,000 litres of water to produce just 1kg of organic cotton. Recycled RPET has a 50% lower carbon footprint than organic cotton. It has also been found that RPET significantly sheds less micro particles than non recycled yarn, when washed (MISTRA). In addition, our RPET towels are compressed at very high temperature to trap and bond their micro particles together, to help protect our oceans.

We recommend washing your towel on low heat in a mesh bag to prevent any damage. To dry it just hang it out.

Dropbear Outdoors RPET towels are printed with safe and sustainable water based inks.
