A Reprieve for the Planet.

Repreve is a recycled fiber that is helping to create a reprieve for the planet. Because Repreve contains recycled materials, including plastic bottles, it helps conserve precious natural resources. Making Repreve uses less petroleum and emits fewer greenhouse gases. We are careful to ensure that Repreve is made with transparency. And with integrity. Read on to see how Repreve is manufactured. And how making Repreve helps lighten our impact on the planet.

Exactly What Is Repreve?
Repreve is a recycled fiber that contains recycled materials—including post-industrial waste and used plastic bottles.* (The PET bottles labeled with “1”). But beware—not all recycled fibers are created equal. Our recycled fibers are "first quality," so they look good, and feel soft and comfortable. They’re also certifiably sustainable. So when you shop, remember: It’s what’s in it that counts. * Repreve nylon does not contain post-consumer plastic bottles.

Made With Transparency. Repreve is made by a publicly-held U.S.-based company, Unifi. It’s the recycled fiber chosen by well-known brands to make their products truly sustainable. The unique U Trust™ Verification system ensures that Repreve fibers are made certifiably sustainable. Each and every fiber has a proprietary signature called Fiberprint™. Through U Trust and Fiberprint, we can verify that Repreve is in products, in the right amounts. So companies that make products using Repreve make reliable recycled content claims.

Sustainability has always been important to Unifi. We make Repreve, but it’s not just about a product to us. It’s become part of our culture.

We have an onsite environmental team that constantly looks at our processes to see how we can reduce, reuse, and recycle materials. We work with our local power company to maximize energy usage. We operate our own trucking fleet and work with our drivers to maximize fuel efficiency. And did we mention,

all of our U.S.-based operations are now landfill-free? All to provide real and transparent sustainable textile solutions to our customers and to you. Like Repreve.

Similarly, we work with our suppliers and customers to reduce the impact of doing business together. It’s not just about a product to us. It’s also about giving back. Through Repreve Gives Back, Unifi invites everyone to help us donate a portion of Repreve sales to non-profit environmental causes.
