Recycling plastics to keep them out of the landfills has become a mission in our society. They are remade back into many different products, but one of the most interesting is clothing. One specific type of plastic bottle called P.E.T., is composed of a plastic resin and a form of polyester. They are able to reuse those ingredients plus spandex to form fabric.
The Elektrix Love Dreamer Playsuit is an example of the amazing things that can come out of recycling. It is the brainchild of Katie Tomasetta, who is a designer from Los Angeles that wanted to create a line of clothing for women that was eco-friendly and edgy at the same time. The idea of the Dreamer Playsuit is to have a tank-style body suit that can be worn for activities on land and in the water.
The fabric is 79% P.E.T. and 21% spandex, which will stretch no matter whether you are doing yoga in the park or skateboarding down the strand and if you decide to take a dip in the ocean, the playsuit will dry quickly, so that you can be off to your next adventure. At Elektrix Love, the Dreamer Playsuit comes in a fun pink plaid pattern with a scoop neckline, thin straps, and nice coverage over the hip area.
The dagger printed on the front of the suit keeps it feeling fresh and edgy, so as not to be too girly! The playsuit is a versatile clothing item that could be paired with different bottoms like shorts, skirts, and pants for a modern look. It is manufactured right in the heart of LA and helps to keep Americans employed. For $76, you can own a piece of clothing that not only looks good, but plays its part in taking care of our environment as well.
