From Plastic Bottles to Your Wardrobe: The Journey of a REPREVE® Heated Jacket

As Earth Day 2024 approaches, drawing attention with its theme "Planet vs. Plastics," we find ourselves reflecting on the journey that brought us to this point—the creation of our recycled collection. Our story is one of innovation, responsibility, and hope, born from a desire to turn a growing environmental concern into a sustainable solution.

The Inspiration Behind Recycled Collection

It began with a realization that each year millions of plastic bottles end up in landfills and oceans, causing significant harm to our planet. The vision was clear: to transform this waste into something valuable. This led us to REPREVE®, a remarkable fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. The process of creating REPREVE® isn't just about recycling—it's about reimagining what our waste can become. This initiative reflects our commitment to sustainability and our belief in taking proactive steps to protect the environment.

From Bottles to Jackets: A Remarkable Transformation

The journey of a plastic bottle from trash to treasure is fascinating. It starts with collection—gathering bottles that might otherwise spend centuries in a landfill or floating in the ocean. These bottles are then cleaned, shredded into flakes, melted into resin, and finally spun into fiber. This fiber is the foundation of our heated apparel, turning what was once waste into essential, stylish, and durable winter gear.

Preserve Our Mother Planet

The impact of choosing REPREVE® and other recycled materials extends far beyond the immediate benefits of waste reduction. By opting for recycled fibers, we reduce the demand for virgin polyester, a process that is heavily reliant on petroleum, consumes vast amounts of energy, and depletes natural resources. Each garment made from recycled materials lessens the strain on our planet, helping to conserve energy and water and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
