What is "Eco-fleece" - Definition & Explanation

A nubby, soft fabric made from recycled soda bottles. Every time you purchase something from eco-fleece you are contributing to saving another piece of the earth, which would otherwise be used as landfill. Of course, you are also wearing plastic from old soda bottles.
