Did you know that Harlequin saves over 300,000 recycled bottles every year that were destined for landfill, but have now found a second life as fabric for a range of school bags? That’s a LOT of bottles.
Harlequin is very proud to be recognised as the creator of the world's first ever 100% P.E.T. (Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate) fabric range of school bags made from post-consumer recycled plastic water bottles.
In 2010, after two years of extensive research and testing, Harlequin took the positive move towards a more sustainable future by introducing our ECO RANGE. By making our polyester fabric from recycled plastic bottles we use fewer resources, cause less pollution, lessen landfill and reduce toxic emissions and our carbon footprint. We wanted to make it easier for you to choose more sustainable products for your kids without any trade-offs.
We promise to keep making these bags, as long as you keep recycling.
