Coming full circle
An essential part of Molo’s sustainable journey is the responsible production of clothes in materials that are better for our earth, such as recycled fibres. Molo uses certified nylon and polyester fabrics made from recycled yarn that reduces waste from landfills by reusing them in sustainable styles in our collections. By transforming post-consumer waste into new resources, we are repurposing the materials, giving them a second life.
The materials
Recycled polyester fibres are made from recycled, post-consumer waste, often plastic bottles, diverted from landfills. The production of recycled polyester requires less energy than that of new fibers and generates fewer CO2 emissions. Recycled nylon fibres are mainly made from old fishing nets, which is a great way to reduce the amount of nets and other types of waste, such as discarded nylon carpets, tights and stockings that end up in our oceans as trash vortexs (trash islands).
How do I know if a product contains recycled fibres?
You can find our selection of products that are made of, or contain, recycled fibres by looking for the recycled logo in the right-hand corner of a product image. The recycled logo also appears on the hangtags of all Molo products that contain recycled fibres.
How to contribute?
Even though recycled polyester is a great, sustainable alternative to virgin materials, it will still produce microplastic fibers in wash. With wash, micro plastic particles from synthetic textiles are released into the stream of our rivers and oceans.

You can prevent this at home by washing garments made from synthetic materials in special fabric bags. The self-cleaning fabric bag is made of a specially designed micro-filter material that collects the microplastic in wash. Simply collect the fibres from the bag afterwards and dispose of them properly.
