OrganoClick presents 7-Up bottle garment

Written by Brett Mathews

ALMEDALEN – At a recent sustainability event in Almedalen, Swedish clean technology company OrganoClick presented a garment made out of recycled polyester derived from 7-up bottles collected by Taiwanese Buddhist charity, Tzu Chi Foundation. The OrganoTex fabric is based on DWR-technology which is free from fluorocarbons and only contains non-harmful substances which are biodegradable. Many DRWs for textiles and garments contain fluorocarbons, a group of chemicals that are bio-accumulative and hormone disturbing.
