100% Cotton Vs 60/40 Polycotton Blend Scrub Caps

Polycotton = Plastic + Cotton

Polycotton is a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers.

In order to make polycotton, the fabric is first made of cotton threads. Then, it is blended with synthetic fibers such as polyester and rayon. This blend helps the fabric to be more durable and breathable than pure cotton fabrics.

100% Cotton Scrub Caps

Cotton is a natural fiber that is grown all over the world. It has been used for centuries to make clothes and other products that are worn close to the skin. It’s very comfortable and breathable, which makes it an ideal material for clothing. And because it’s made from plants, there’s no need for harsh chemicals or pesticides in production, which means cotton can be more environmentally friendly than synthetics like polyester or nylon.

Why We Choose 100% Cotton

Even factoring in slight shrinking with the first wash, cotton is the best way forward in the reuse-able movement. We don't buy the middle point of transitioning to 60/40 blends. 

In 2015, an estimated total of 42 million tonnes of plastic textile waste were generated globally, making textiles the third largest contributor to plastic waste generation, accounting for 14 % of all plastic waste (Figure 10) (Geyer et al., 2017).
