Our Mission

Our oceans are filled with plastic waste and we at DOWE can’t stand idly by and do nothing. That is why we have recently started manufacturing several sportswear products from 100% recycled PET. It is DOWE’s goal to gradually make all products even more sustainable.

To help us in our mission we have joined forces with ORDL (Oriental Resources Development Limited) from Taiwan, a major supplier of PET recycling. The company has adopted the “Reduce, Recycle, Replace” system as its mission statement and is making a significant contribution to PET recycling in South East Asia.

In the plants, the discarded bottles are sorted by colour, washed and shredded. After a purity check, a high-quality yarn suitable for clothing production is spun from the material. It is used in many renowned sporting goods all over the world. This mode of material production is more environmentally friendly and energy efficient than the traditional process of producing clothing from raw materials.

These functional materials in our sportswear are particularly environmentally friendly:
