The Cons of Polyester:

Polyester is not considered as an eco-friendly material for a number of reasons:

  • It takes a lot of energy to produce, and its production process emits greenhouse gases and harmful chemicals into the environment.
  • Its production process uses large amounts of water for cooling, plus lubricants that can cause contamination in the water supply.
  • It is not biodegradable.

The Pros of Polyester:

Polyester is not without its merits, however.

  • One of the positives for polyester is that it can be recycled.
  • It also uses less water to produce than some natural fiber materials (though unlike natural fibers, it is still not biodegradable.)
