Congratulations to our newest winners! Our Champions of Sustainability represent brands, retailers and textile partners who keep billions of plastic bottles out of the waste stream by using REPREVE recycled fiber. When we first developed REPREVE, we could not imagine its exponential growth. It is now a global force that reduces plastic pollution and helps to preserve natural resources by requiring less petroleum, energy and water to produce.
But none of this could have been achieved without our partners' commitment to sustainability. We applaud our winners for taking this journey with us and expanding it. Let's support our champions who are leading the way for the good of tomorrow.
The Ultimate Accomplishment
Billion Bottle Circle
What does a billion bottles look like? If you place 8-inch plastic bottles end to end, they would circle the Earth five times. That's why the Billion Bottle Circle is our most prestigious award. The winners are:
• Nike • Polartec • Target
We thank these brands for their dedication to the environment. They are extraordinary leaders who inspire other businesses to be good stewards of our planet and our future.
