Here in Maine, we get our bottle deposit back if we recycle our bottles. We have our recycling bin beside our garbage bin, so recycling bottles is easy to do in our house. Then every few weeks, I take the GREEN bag to the grocery store and drop it off at the recycling center. A few days later, I can check my account balance. I can either use get the cash or use it on groceries. I tend to just use the balance on groceries.
But clothing made out of bottles? Now, that's a really cool and awesome idea. And, even better?
REPREVE is a recycled fiber that helps turn plastic bottles you recycle into cool stuff you can wear and use every day. Now there's no excuse to not recycle!!!
Companies that I already shop at and LOVE already use REPREVE to make their products greener:
- Volcom graphic t-shirts are made with REPREVE - 2 recycled plastic bottles
- one Patagonia fleece jacket made with REPREVE - 40 recycled plastic bottles
- Life Khaki by Haggar made with REPREVE - 7 recycled plastic bottles
Other great brands that use REPREVE in some of their products are: The North Face, Polartec, Patagonia, Beija-Flor, Lauren Conrad's XO (eco) by Blue Avocado, Swiftwick socks, and many more!!!
