Thanks to REPREVE for sponsoring today’s #TurnItGreen discussion. My long time readers will know that my enthusiasm for recycling is all my own.

Did you know the U.S. plastic bottle recycling rate is less than 30 percent? So less than one-third of all plastic bottles get recycled! I was surprised to find it was so low.

Most people don’t think about what happens to plastic bottles after you recycle them, so I want to share how REPREVE uses plastic bottle to create recycled fiber that is used in clothing and other products. And REPREVE is on a mission to get the word out: Just recycle more!

Repreve takes water bottles and recyles them to create recycled fiber used to make clothing and other products#TurnItGreen

REPREVE is a recycled fiber that helps turn the plastic bottles you recycle into cool stuff you can wear and use every day. A lot of brands that I like use REPREVE to make their products greener. Here are some products made with REPREVE:

• Volcom graphic t-shirts are made with REPREVE, using 2 recycled plastic bottles.
• One Patgonia fleece jacket with REPREVE has 40 recycled plastic bottles.
• Life Khaki by Haggar uses REPREVE to put 7 recycled plastic bottles in every pair of pants..

Other brands made with REPREVE: The North Face, Polartec, Patagonia, Beija-Flor, Lauren Conrad’s XO(eco) by Blue Avocado, Swiftwick socks, and more.

I was given 2 REPREVE beanies. One REPREVE green beanie is made from 6 recycled plastic bottles! I am keeping one for myself because I fell in love with how warm it is and I am giving the other REPREVE beanie away to one of my readers.

  1. I was shocked they make jean out of plastic bottles! I love that they make so many things out of plastic bottles. I am going to be shopping at that site frequently now! :)

  2. WOW! North Face and Patagonia BOTH use that product? Excellent! I’d LOVE a beanie. We’re doing winter camping and it would be an excellent addition to my gear.

  3. I liked the North Face jacket of course the jeans were nice too! How amazing that they are even able to integrate it into the seats of cars!
