In May, retailers Sears will begin selling men’s suits made of fabric blend of wool and polyester spun from recycled plastic soda bottles.

Sold under the Covington Perfect brand, a complete suit will retail for about $250, according to Retuers.

Another eco-friendly aspect about the suit may appeal to eco-conscious business executives – the garment is machine-washable and can be put in the dryer, eliminating costly dry cleaning bills.

Teijin, a Japanese chemical company, makes the fabric.

In Japan, Teijin’s recycled fabrics go into suits sold by retailer Aoki.

In late 2007, Sears began phasing out packaging that contained PVC.
