Plastics are incredibly useful materials, but they don’t belong in our soil, lakes, rivers or oceans. Plastic waste is one of the most pressing problems our planet faces. We need to find uses for this waste to prevent it from being dumped in the environment.

That’s why we have created this New WeatherBeeta Green-Tec 900D Collection using recycled plastics for the outer fabric and lining. Each rug saves over 340 plastic bottles (based on 500ml bottles for a 75” per blanket, number of bottles will vary depending on the size of the blanket) from going into landfill or the ocean. But that’s not the only reason why this blanket is a better choice for the environment. The way we have made it uses far less (over 50% less) energy to produce the fabric than a traditional blanket. Plus, it is packaged in recyclable packaging that is also made from PCR (post-consumer recyclable plastic) further reducing the environmental impact of our Green-Tec range.

We hope one day all blankets will be made this way. We have done all this while retaining 100% of the WeatherBeeta quality we are world famous for. While our blankets come with a 3-year warranty, they often last far longer than that. We like to think of a WeatherBeeta blanket as a long-term investment in a happy horse and a happy owner. We think cheaper alternatives simply are not up to WeatherBeeta standards and typically don’t last as long. So you can buy a WeatherBeeta blanket with confidence, knowing it should last for many years to come.

For Winter 2020, the Green-Tec range is available as a Heavy (360g) and Medium (220g). Featuring a waterproof and breathable 900 denier PCR outer from recycled bottles, a strong 150 denier diamond weave lining PCR fabric, a detach-a-neck style for versatility and a traditional side gusset for natural movement; quick clip front closure also offers maximum adjustability, twin low cross surcingles, large tail flap for extra protection and removable, adjustable leg straps; this range offers all of the great features expected in a WeatherBeeta blanket.
