AAPN member Unifi have been bringing innovative and truly sustainable products to the market for years now, and 2020 is starting out as no exception as they debut several new ones at the 2020 Outdoor + Snow Show in Denver.
The products include REPREVE Cationic-Dyeable Polyester, which is basically bringing a sustainable revolution to the very popular heathers market and REPREVE Our Ocean, which is made with plastics collected within 50km of waterways or coastal areas in developing countries or regions.
Brilliant stuff, both for the environment and our industry. “People around the globe are asking, ‘how can we save our oceans from plastic pollution?’ We listened and carefully designed meaningful processes to address this problem directly,” said Jay Hertwig, Unifi’s Senior Vice President of Global Brand Sales. “We’re finding swimwear brands are particularly interested in REPREVE Our Ocean, and we’re proud to provide a textile solution to help protect this critical ecosystem.”
Congratulations to Unifi on their continued innovation and their commitment to our environment and future.
