Sponsored by Repreve. All opinions are my own.Have you heard of Repreve? You haven’t? Repreve is recycled fiber made from plastic bottles. This fiber is finding it’s way into clothes and other everyday items. This is a great way to reuse all those water bottles that consumers just toss out in their trash. It also helps save our natural resources by recycling and keeping waste out of the landfill.
The U.S. plastic bottle recycling rate is less than 30 percent—so less than one-third of all plastic bottles get recycled. Most people don’t think about what happens to plastic bottles after you recycle them. So Repreve is on a mission to get the word out: Just recycle more. And buy REPREVE products.
Wonder who uses Repreve products? These companies are trying to Turn It Green with Repreve:
• Volcom graphic t-shirts are made with REPREVE, using 2 recycled plastic bottles.
• One Patgonia fleece jacket with REPREVE has 40 recycled plastic bottles, so you can be a real “active-ist.”
• Life Khaki by Haggar uses REPREVE to put 7 recycled plastic bottles in every pair of pants; so wear what you believe.
Other brands made with REPREVE: The North Face, Polartec, Patagonia, Beija-Flor, Lauren Conrad’s XO(eco) by Blue Avocado, Swiftwick socks, and more. For more information on all the products made with Repreve, please visit their site.
