The cleaned bottles and then shredded into pellets. To create the yarn the pellets are crushed and melted which are spun into thread. This process gives plastic a second life and uses 59% less energy to produce than virgin polyester. Just to give an example, 16 water bottles will produce enough fibre to make a 30cm toy.
