|"Who knew it could go from that to this!"||"Here's how it's done. Plastic bottles labeled with the #1 on the bottom are the same chemistry make-up as polyester, which is called PET. PET bottle chips and flakes are made into REPREVE fiber, which is then woven into the Poly Spandex fabric that we make our leggings out of."||"What's even cooler is that our Poly Spandex is treated with ChitoSante - a new environmentally friendly product that is made from crab and/or shrimp shells. It gives the fabric anti-bacterial, odor resistant, breathable and wicking super-powers. Wha?? How awesome is that."||"So now you know how it's done.
