#TurnItGreen With REPREVE Recycled

by Dinah Wulf

Thank you to REPREVE for sponsoring todays post, #TurnItGreen With REPREVE Recycled! All opinions are 100% my own!

As you may (or may not!) know I am a promoter of all things repurposed, recycled, upcycled, reused, you name it! My entire blog and other blog are full of creative ways to reuse. This is why I wanted to be a part of the #TurnItGreen With REPREVE Recycled campaign.  REPREVE is a recycled fiber that helps turn plastic bottles you recycle into cool stuff you can wear and use every day. Now there’s no excuse not to recycle! Last time I checked, the number of plastic bottles recycled just this year to make REPREVE was over 600 Million!

The U.S. plastic bottle recycling rate is less than 30 percent—so less than one-third of all plastic bottles get recycled. Most people don’t think about what happens to plastic bottles after you recycle them. So REPREVE is on a mission to get the word out:

  1. Just recycle more.
  2. And buy REPREVE products.

A lot of brands you love use REPREVE to make their products greener:

Volcom graphic t-shirts are made with REPREVE, using 2 or more recycled plastic bottles.

One Patgonia fleece jacket with REPREVE has 40 recycled plastic bottles, so you can be a real “active-ist.”

Life Khaki by Haggar uses REPREVE to put 7 recycled plastic bottles in every pair of pants; so wear what you believe.

Other brands made with REPREVE: The North Face, Polartec, Patagonia, Beija-Flor, Lauren Conrad’s XO(eco) by Blue Avocado, Swiftwick socks, and more.

So I hope you check them out! Stay tuned because I will be sharing a video of how my little Mia and I take part in a sustainable lifestyle!
