One of OGIO’s integral Design Pillars is Sustainability. It is a core focus of ours as we move forward in designing and producing new products.

  2. Flakes: Bottles are cleaned and ground into flakes.
  3. Chips: The flakes are reprocessed and dried to form chips.
  4. Polyester Yarn: The chips are melt extruded and spun into high-tenacity yarn.
  5. Fabric: The yarn is woven into fabric to create Cordura® Eco.
