Our passion is developing sustainable performance fiber solutions to help protect the planet we live on. And our experience working with 300 leading brands, retailers and textile partners has shown us that sustainability is a team sport.

So, we're excited to celebrate our 2018 REPREVE® Champions of Sustainability—the forward-looking companies who helped divert billions of plastic bottles from our land and oceans with our REPREVE recycled performance fiber. We choose sustainability today for the good of tomorrow. Together.

Billion Bottle Circle

One Billion Each and Counting

This year, we celebrate three winners in our Billion Bottle Circle. Each has recycled the equivalent of one billion or more bottles into their products by using REPREVE. Their commitment to using REPREVE recycled performance fibers is showing the way for other brands, retailers and manufacturers.

What does a billion bottles look like? Lay those billion bottles end to end, and you'll circle our planet five times. Or picture every person in Texas (27,000,000) wearing a new fleece jacket—made with REPREVE, of course.

Even the Award is Recycled

A Growing Commitment

Sustainability is a movement, not a moment. Our Champions of Sustainability Award program recognizes companies' commitment to changing how textile products are made. In the second year, we added 18 new winners. It's great to see so many major brands, retailers, and textile partners using their scale and influence to make change.

The award trophies, made from recycled and repurposed materials, symbolize another kind of commitment. They are handcrafted by the Olio, a nonprofit studio and social enterprise in Winston-Salem, NC, that empowers teens and young adults through entrepreneurship, glassblowing, art and sustainable solutions.

A Note from Unifi

We’re All in This Together

At Unifi, sustainability starts at the top. Kevin Hall, CEO, says, "We're proud to inspire our Champions of Sustainability to reach their own sustainability goals, as they help us toward our goal of recycling 30 billion bottles by 2022."

"We see mountains of plastic in our landfills. We read that every minute, a garbage truck load of plastic winds up in our oceans. And we realize that only by working together, will we tackle such a massive problem," says Helen Sahi, VP, Global Corporate Sustainability.
