Across the country with our REPREVE #TurnItGreen Tour

In celebration of America Recycles Day 2015, the REPREVE #TurnItGreen tour made its official debut at the Rock N Roll Marathon and Expo in Las Vegas. The mobile tour showcases the many great REPREVE-based products that can be made from plastic bottles that consumers recycle.

The national #TurnItGreen tour will make stops throughout the United States at schools, retail locations and major entertainment and sporting events, including The North Face Endurance Challenge Series, Volcom action sport events and UNC-Chapel Hill collegiate sports games. The tour will also visit elementary schools across the nation where REPREVE, together with Marvel Universe LIVE!, will host the REPREVE Recycle Rally that encourages K-5 students to recycle the most plastic bottles to win Marvel Universe Live tickets and REPREVE-based products.

The REPREVE #TurnItGreen tour will feature:

  • A REPREVE-branded trailer with interactive displays that demonstrate the process of converting recycled plastic bottles into REPREVE yarn, resulting in products made by many of the worlds most respected brands.
  • Interactive gaming units and activities in which participants can win prizes from brands that make REPREVE-based products, including tee-shirts, jackets, hats, fleece-based accessories, blankets, canvas artwork, and koozies from brand partners Volcom, Polartec and Snapbox
  • Digital display and video units, as well as iPad kiosks for social sharing

The mobile experience is sponsored by Polartec, Sage, Renewtra, Volcom and Snapbox, and will be led by a REPREVE-branded Ford F350, which utilizes REPREVE-based fabric made from 16 plastic bottles in its upholstery.
