Green Rise™ (Plant-based Zipper)
Composition 70% Plant-based PET + 30% Polyacetal (POM)
Weight 5 g/m²
To create the polyester used to make this zipper, we only use 70% of the conventional terephthalic acid. The remaining 30% are replaced by ethylene glycol which is obtained from a non-consumable by-product of the sugar cane production. This effectively reduces the consumption of fossil resources.
