Xiaomi has launched one more product in the lifestyle range in India. The Chinese company has announced Mi Eco Active T-shirt on crowdfunding for Rs 999. The big highlight of this new Mi Eco Active T-shirt is that it’s made from 100 percent ‘Recyclable Plastic’. Xiaomi claims that the product is skin-friendly, and it is designed for a smooth and comfortable fitness session. Xiaomi said that each Mi Eco-Active T-Shirt is made using 12 recycled PET bottles collected from different parts of the country.
Each Eco-Active T-Shirts is made with the yarn of discarded PET bottles. The yarn consumes 10 liters of water for recycling every kilogram of plastic yarn as compared to a normal cotton T-shirt which takes about 23,000 liters of water to process the same.
Mi Eco-Active T-Shirt also saves up to 70 percent of carbon emission in comparison to a regular cotton t-shirt and comes with tags embedded with holy basil seeds which can be sown. Xiaomi is also making sure that the packaging is eco-friendly too. Mi Eco-Active T-Shirt comes in a canister packaging which can be used as a pot for sowing those tag seeds.
As per Xiaomi, the Eco-Active T-Shirts are breathable, sweat-absorbent and skin-friendly, making it perfect for your daily fitness session. The recyclable polyester material of the T-Shirt also acts as a quick moisture absorbent, making sure that your T-Shirt is relatively dry even during your intense workout sessions, added company.

We have actively worked towards creating merchandise that not only offers optimal breathability but is ingeniously designed to reduce waste by using discarded PET bottles to manufacture the T-Shirts that can be further recycled too. In this era of mindful manufacturing, we hope to contribute as much as we can and nurture the environment that has given us plenty.”
