Xtep had launched its first PLA windbreaker on June 5, 2020. At that time, PLA accounted for 19 per cent of the trench coat fabric. One year later, the proportion of PLA t-shirts has risen sharply to 60 per cent.
The company also plans to increase the PLA content of knitted sweaters scheduled to go on sale in the second quarter of 2022 by 67 per cent, and in the third quarter of the same year, 100 per cent pure PLA trench coats will be on the market. In the future, Xtep will gradually achieve layers of breakthroughs in the application of PLA products and strive to achieve more than one million pieces of PLA products in a single season before 2023, Xtep said in a press release.
Xtep had also displayed all the environment-friendly products of the group's environmental protection family on the day of the launch last week. In addition to the ready-made clothing made of PLA material, there are also shoes, clothing and accessories made of organic cotton, serona, DuPont paper and other environmentally friendly materials.
