Q:
What is Repreve?
A:
Repreve, made by Unifi, is a family of synthetic fibers containing recycled materials. Unlike many other recycled yarns, the recycled content is certified by an outside party.

Q:
What's the difference between Repreve and other recycled fibers in the market?
A:
Unlike many other recycled yarns, Repreve contains recycled materials, including plastic bottles, and meets Unifi's first quality standards when compared to virgin products. In addition, our U Trust™ verification program ensures that Repreve recycled fibers are traceable, transparent, and most important, certifiably sustainable. Repreve is third-party certified for its claim of recycled content by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS). And with our unique Fiberprint™ technology, products made from fabrics with Repreve are tested and certified before the Repreve brand name can be used. So if you see the Repreve name, you have assurance that it’s recycled.

* Our goal is to have all products certified for recycled content claims. However, as we continue to evolve our recycled product offering, some of our newer products may be under evaluation by a third party.
Q:
What's the difference between Repreve and fibers made from virgin materials?
A:
There's just one important difference: Repreve contains recycled materials.
Q:
What recycled materials is Repreve made from?
A:
You can count on the fact that Repreve is always made from recycled materials. Repreve polyester is available as a fiber containing post-consumer waste (recycled PET plastic bottles) or as a hybrid blend of pre-consumer and post-consumer waste. Repreve nylon is made from pre-consumer waste.
Q:
How is Repreve made?
A:
Repreve contains recycled materials, including plastic bottles. This is our process in a nutshell: Waste is collected. The waste enters a unique material conversion process, where it is chopped, melted, and reformulated to form a recycled chip. The Repreve chip then enters a proprietary extrusion and texturing process to form Repreve recycled fiber. Go to Making It Green to see more about our process.

Q:
What's third-party certification? What organizations certify Repreve?
A:
A third-party certification provides an independent, objective review of a company's product claims and environmental performance. Repreve is third-party certified for its claim of recycled content through Scientific Certification Systems (SCS). Every year, SCS performs a full examination of our recycled products, including our recycling process, production records, and manufacturing operations. SCS is a leading third-party certifier and standards developer of environmental and sustainability claims. Repreve is also Oeko-Tex certified. Oeko-Tex is a well-known international eco-label offering "Confidence in Textiles." Repreve is tested and qualified to ensure that it is free of harmful levels of more than 100 restricted substances.

* Our goal is to have all products certified for recycled content claims. However, as we continue to evolve our recycled product offering, some of our newer products may be under evaluation by a third party.
