We at POUI are pleased to have launched the first phase of our operations, which are products made of Recycled PET Plastic and have them reintegrated into everyday use within Trinidad and Tobago. The theme for this first phase is “Embrace the Green Revolution”. We are using this recycled plastic to manufacture a broad range of eco-friendly apparel and products. For our first line of production we are delighted to introduce clothing made of this recycled material. Not only are we using recycled plastic, but we are also using recycled cotton within this process. The cotton is grouped with like colours and shredded then mulched into cotton fibers. Seeing that they have already been dyed this process is not repeated. After this stage the fibers are carded then spun into yarn. The plastic after being recycled goes through a similar process where it’s also spun into yarn. At this stage they are combined to manufacture cloth.

POUI is excited to provide Recycled Plastic T-Shirts made from

  • 100% recycled plastic
  • 50% recycled cotton and 50% recycled plastic
  • 65% recycled cotton and 35% recycled plastic
  • 55% recycled cotton and 45% recycled plastic

Individuals and companies purchasing our recycled products must understand that they cost a bit more than non-recycled clothing. However the benefits are immediate and long term in addition to helping us in our quest for environmental protection, sustainable use of our natural resources and reducing landfill blockage. POUI is proud to market and provide this affordable, environmentally friendly and comfortable recycled product to you. We at POUI hope that more citizens will be convinced about the benefits of buying Recycled PET Products and Embrace the Green Revolution.
