What's better than being able to make swim trunks out of recycled plastic bottles? Being able to ship the ones we've picked up to be made into the Repreve fabric that is used for our trunks.
After our Hobie Beach cleanup, we sorted through the trash and separated the bottles labeled 1 for PET plastic into boxes. We packed them up and shipped them out to Unifi's bottle processing center.
In an even bigger effort to keep plastics out of our environment, we have been collecting bottles on a weekly basis from a local office that is unable to recycle them in their building and shipping these, as well.
