-How sustainable is recycled plastic, really?

An increasing number of fashion brands – including Prada, Stella McCartney and Adidas – are using recycled plastic to up their green credentials. Vogue looks at why it might not be such a sustainable fix.

Recycled plastic is in fashion right now, whether it’s eco-trainers or ready-to-wear pieces by luxury brands. Prada has committed to using only recycled nylon by 2021; Stella McCartney has set a goal of using just recycled nylon by 2020 and recycled polyester by 2025; and Marni and Preen both used recycled plastic bottles in their spring/summer 2020 collections.

The American Beverage Association and its three biggest members are working to improve bottle recycling rates with a new $100 million program to modernize infrastructure and build public awareness. Petrochemical Biotechnology PEF

Despite the proliferation of recycling bins everywhere from offices to airports to street corners, only about a third of plastic bottles produced in the U.S. actually get recycled. That’s a number that the American Beverage Association and its three largest members intend to increase with a major new initiative.

-New report lays bare EU plastic crisis

A new report published on Wednesday (6 November) reveals that 40 percent of plastic products are garbage after less than a month, and that the current recycling systems in Europe cannot cope with such volumes of waste.Petrochemical Biotechnology PEF

Keeping in mind that about 99 percent of all plastics are made from fossil resources like oil, gas, and coal, the greenhouse gas emissions from the plastic lifecycle production threaten the ability of the global community to keep a global temperature rise below 1.5C.
