Recycled plastics and a growing outdoor sector

Despite the economic crisis, the sports and outdoor sector is still growing, says the German "Forum PET” in a recent press release. According to Forum PET, recent turnover in Europe is about 6 billion Euro. More and more manufacturers of outdoor clothing and equipment now rely on recycled plastics materials. Jack Wolfskin, Vaude or Fjällräven to name just a few, offer products made from recycled plastics. For example: fleece jackets or trekking shirts from used plastic bottles or bags from truck tarpaulins are high on the agenda. Just more proof for what the plastics manufacturers have already known for many years: plastics are just too valuable to be thrown away.
