Are you aware that Unifi and Polartec are introducing high performance fabrics made from 100 percent post-consumer waste (clear plastic water bottles)? They recently announced their partnership on this project.

"Polartec, LLC and Unifi, Inc. announce a new partnership introducing performance fabrics made with REPREVE 100. REPREVE 100 is made from 100 percent post-consumer waste (clear plastic water bottles).

Polartec and Unifi have been industry leaders in the development of high performance recycled content yarns and fabrics. Collaborative efforts
have grown Polartec's recycled product line from less than one percent of total production to over 30 percent in the past four years - dramatically
reducing carbon emissions and energy consumption. The introduction of REPREVE 100 will enable Polartec to shift much more production to recycled content by 2011. Every pound of REPREVE 100 yarn contains approximately 27 water bottles."

Anyway, for those of you interested in the environment (the majority of you), I assume that recycling water bottles is a good idea... In all honesty, I have no clue if the process of recycling the bottles creates more pollution, but at face value this appears to be a good concept.

If you wish to be green and discuss environmental issues regarding textiles and fashion, you are welcome to join the Organic Fashion Group here on the Fashion Industry Network. Actually, in the Groups section, you will also find a "Green Fashion" group that you may have interest in joining.

Learn more about the partnership that helps the process of turning water bottles into fabric.
