TRASH TO TRUNKS
Billions of plastic bottles go into landfills every year. But now we can do something about it. We’re excited to be working with REPREVE: The leading, most trusted, branded performance fiber made from recycled materials (including plastic bottles).
REPREVE transforms recycled bottles into an amazing fiber, used by the world's leading brands to make athletic and fashion apparel and more. The process embeds properties like wicking, adaptive warming and cooling, water repellency, and more at the fiber level. For reliable, durable quality.
RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES
PET PLASTIC ♳
Polyethylene terephthalate, commonly abbreviated PET or PETE, is the same makeup of polyester. Meaning that plastic bottles, just like clothes are both made out of the same type of polyester. Cool, right?
Once the bottles are collected, they're sorted, washed and chopped into tiny pieces called flake.
The clean flake is blended, melted, and turned into chip.
The chip enters a texturing process and it gets turned into our fiber.
