Recycled Scrunchie Made From Pre-Consumer Waste

Environmental Impact

Every time we make clothing from a roll of fabric, there are some “scraps” that get left behind. This lonely material, known as “pre-consumer” waste, contributes significantly to the environmental footprint of clothing. Enter scrunchies! Made from the leftover recycled material used for our leggings, our scrunchies are quick-drying and moisture-wicking, while also enabling us to reduce our pre-consumer waste.

Materials: 88% Repreve® RPET (recycled polyester made from post-consumer plastic bottles), 12% spandex.

Made from fabric remnants

Industry-wide it’s estimated that 15-20% of fabric used to make clothing is discarded as pre-consumer waste, and although we use some nifty approaches to maximize the efficiency of our garment’s patterns, we still have some leftover. These headbands are our way of reducing the amount of pre-consumer waste we create when we cut our garments out of our recycled fabric. The process goes like this:

Love my scrunchies!

I love how big these scrunchies are and the vibrant colors! They feel amazing and stay in my hair! Obviously with them being made from recycled material and helping the marine world is a huge plus for me always. Definitely would recommend this brand and these scrunchies!

Fun and educational

Bought these for my great niece who is 10. Thought she would love the design and would be an opportunity to expand her thinking about the beauty and fragility of our environment. Thank you for combining them into a functional product!

Awesome company and products

I love the idea of using scrap material from bigger items to make accessories to eliminate waste. All the products I’ve bought from Waterlust are top quality, the shipping has always been fast even during pandemic and holiday times, their customer service is unmatched (they really care about getting you the best product/size, take feedback seriously and act on it, etc.), and I love that I can support a small business that supports good causes.

Great Stocking Stuffers

I got 6 of these for stocking stuffers and had to convince myself I couldn’t keep them all for myself! I especially love the postcards that came with each one. They’re vibrant and very soft. It worked great at keeping my thick hair pulled back without falling out or seeming strained. Highly recommend!

WORLDS BEST SCRUNCHIES!!!!!!!!!

I have super thick hair and like to put it up wet from time to time...it never fails I ruin my scrunhies because they mildew and don't dry out. First of all this scrunchie does not pull hair...second its great for water because it dries quickly and doesnt hold odors...third its the perfect size for thick hair! Its also super comfy to wear on my wrists! I get compliments on them everywhere I go. I have 3 so far...I will eventually have them all!!!
