How can synthetic fleece and other materials be made from pop bottles?
Fleece is made of polyester, a petroleum-based synthetic that can be spun into fibers or moulded into plastic. Recycled polyester is derived from a variety of post-consumer and post-industrial sources, such as consumer recycled pop bottles.
To make recycled polyester, the bottles are separated by color, sterilized and then crushed, chopped and melted.
The melted plastic is extruded through a shower-head type device, producing fibrous polyester strands. Those strands are woven into Boardroom ECO Apparel's Recycled Polyester Eco-Fabrics.

|indeed.. and you can buy 3 angle iron and weld it the length of the tralier between corners for added rigidity. With the corrugated 1/16-3/32 steel, that will make the exterior top corners supremely strong.. I have basically decided to buy 4 of these from a terminal in the SE US and build myself a nice house with the bottom two in one direction, spaced accordingly to allow the top two to sit perpendicular to the bottom allowing all 4 corners to line up. It's just me and my kid.|
