In a world increasingly driven by eco-conscious choices, businesses are embracing sustainable practices, and the textile industry is no exception. Here at HiViz, it is important for us to be able to incorporate practices in our business that are good for sustainability and the future, for our planet and our kids! That is why we're excited about REPREVE® recycled polyester. Sourced from post-consumer plastic bottles, this eco-friendly material not only reduces plastic waste but also delivers unparalleled quality, making it the ideal choice for HiViz neon swimwear.
What is REPREVE® Recycled Polyester?
As consumers demand more sustainable products, forward-thinking companies like Unifi responded with a groundbreaking solution: REPREVE® recycled polyester. Designed to combat plastic pollution while maintaining top-notch performance, this fabric has become a game-changer in the world of eco-conscious textiles.
REPREVE® is born from a remarkable process that starts with collecting discarded plastic bottles from recycling centers and coastal cleanups worldwide. These bottles undergo meticulous sorting, cleaning, and preparation, removing labels and caps to ensure a clean feedstock.
Through an advanced recycling process, the plastic bottles are transformed into small pellets and eventually polyester chips—the fundamental building blocks of REPREVE® recycled polyester fabric.
