How We Create Our Eco-Friendly Patches With 100% Recycled Post-Consumer Plastic

Outpatch started with one goal: creating beautiful, sustainably made patches. When you purchase our embroidered, recycled patches, you can know that you’re making a smart choice for your business and the environment. We embroider our patches with 100% post-consumer PET bottles.

We use Polyneon Green, a premium embroidery thread created to make the textile industry more sustainable and reduce plastic waste. Using this material creates a sustainable product without sacrificing quality. With Polyneon Green, we can create premium, resistant, and shiny stick-on patches.

Polyneon Green thread utilizes recycled transparent bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). This process allows us to create custom sticker patches with existing materials so no new waste is created and non-renewable resources are saved.

What are the benefits of using Polynenon Green?

  • Energy-saving production process
  • Reduce waste
  • High-quality embroidery thread made of recycled plastic
  • Excellent performance on industrial embroidery machines
  • Color consistency
  • Robust, stable, shiny, and resistant to chlorine

What is the process of turning recyclable plain plastic into radiant embroideries?

  1. Start with PET recycled bottles and save them from the landfill.
  2. The bottles are turned into flakes.
  3. Then those flakes are turned into chips.
  4. These chips go through a process called extrusion.
  5. Extrusion turns the recycled parts into new brilliant thread.
  6. The thread is then used to create our sustainable embroidered stick-on patches.
