Polyester is made of plastic, in case you didn't know.

I didn't either until I began working on Sustainimals! Polyester is made of plastic, and thanks to breakthrough technology, it can now be created from recycled plastic! Fabric, stuffing, and thread for Sustainimals are produced entirely of post-consumer recycled plastic. All of the materials were tested and certified to the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) 4.0.


About Sustainimals

I'm Julia. I've always loved animals, both real and stuffed. Stuffed animals were such an important part of my childhood; my brother and I were not allowed to watch much TV as kids, so making up elaborate skits with our stuffed animals was one of our main sources of entertainment. Our stuffed animals had names, personalities, and elaborate origin stories. As I learn more about the state of the world, I become more and more concerned about the world we are leaving behind for not only our children, but also the animal kingdom. It breaks my heart to think that something as innocent and beloved as a stuffed animal is contributing to the problems facing real animals. Stuffed animals are traditionally made from polyester, which is derived from coal and petroleum, which contributes to global warming. Polyester is not biodegradable, so it contributes to crowded landfills. I had started to see other soft goods made from recycled plastic – yoga pants, t-shirts, jackets, swimwear… why not stuffed animals? And with that, Sustainimals was born.
