Through Dynasty Sport’s pro team and grassroots programs, we are on track to repurpose in excess of 12,000,000 plastic bottles in 2023.
Along with the use of recycled bottles, the production of our Ecotek fabrics also have some great environmental benefits. In comparison to normal fabric the production of our Ecotek fabrics use; 62% less energy, 99% less water, 35% less waste created and upwards of 20% less CO2 emitted.
Currently we make jerseys, dresses, singlets, training shirts, t-shirts, socks, shorts, pants, hoodies, jumpers and jackets using Ecotek fabric. We are working hard on being able to make hats and bags from Ecotek fabric.
Apparel made from Ecotek fabric is suitable for all sports. This includes rugby, rugby league, netball, cricket, football, volleyball basketball, touch, tag, rowing, lawn bowls, golf, tennis, AFL and many more. It’s also great for school P.E. or sport uniforms, school leavers clothing and custom corporate wear.
When comparing the manufacturing of conventional polyester to Ecotek mechanically recycled polyester, the results include a reduction of approximately 62% less energy and 99% less water used in the production process. There is also up to 35% less waste created and upwards of 20% less CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.
No our garments won't feel any different to wear. In most cases our Ecotek recycled fabric will be a similar weight and thickness to a traditional garment.
Yes, it does, in-fact testing has shown our new Ecotek fabrics actually breath better due to the anti-microbial treatments the fabrics undergo during production.
Anti-microbial fabrics provide a layer of protection against bacteria, mildew, mould, and other hazardous nasties. In combination, our treated yarns assist in stopping these microbes from developing, while simultaneously promoting moisture movement, maximising comfort and actually extending the life of the garment.
Dynasty Sport Ecotek garments typically contain between 20 to 46 recycled plastic bottles per garment. This is an average number based on size variants.
Absolutely! Dynasty Sports vibrant range of colours are available without change. Our ready to cut rolls of fabric arrive in the same way they always have, while the sublimation process is unchanged, meaning your designs and colour choice is unlimited.
All Ecotek garments are produced with a unique Ecotek swing tag attached to the garment when delivered. It’s important we celebrate the benefits of Ecotek and there are plans to include Ecotek branding into the neck labels and pips on future garments.
Nope, shrinkage isn’t a problem for our new Ecotek range, the fabric has been wash tested and comfortably meet the thresholds of our existing polycotton program.
When washed clothes made out of synthetic materials lose tiny plastic fibers that end up in wastewater. Microplastics are fragments of any type of plastic less than 5 mm in length.
Line dry your clothes where possible, chose cooler and shorter cycle settings on your washing maching and consider installing a filter on your washing machine or using a laundry bag or laundry ball.
The care for each Ecotek garment can vary depending on the type of fabric, You are best to consult the care label on the inside of your specific garment.
There are currently 27 fabrics across our Ecotek range each produced from recycled plastic bottles. This number will continue to grow as we expand or garment offerings across our retail, and team wear programs.
It is estimated that in the 2023 calendar year Dynasty Sport will repurpose in excess of 12-million single use plastic bottles.
Currently it is a mixture, however we are constantly moving more and more products across to recycled products.
