Earth-Friendly Denim Fabric
REPREVE is the world’s number one brand of recycled performance fiber. The high-quality fibers are made from 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste. They are also certified and traceable!
The REPREVE brand was created to foster a sustainable world by diverting plastic bottles—billions of them—from landfills and oceans. REPREVE also collects and reuses industrial waste, starting with their own. Compared to virgin fiber, REPREVE helps to offset the use of petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy in the process.
So, How Do Recycled Plastic Bottles Become Comfy Jeans?
Well, it’s pretty simple. Plastic bottles are collected, ground, then melted into pellets which are spun into polyester yarn. From here, the recycled polyester is blended with cotton and stretchy elastane to create the flexible denim you know and love!
