Summary: 
What both Hoffman and Helen Sahi, VP of global corporate sustainability at Unifi, hope will raise the growing popularity of recycled plastic textiles is transparency around what it actually takes to manufacture this material, and what it can be turned into. Hoffman and Unifi, along with brands like Nike and Rothy’s that use Repreve, set up a demonstration room where visitors could see how plastic bottles are turned into textiles, and what those textiles can become, during New York Fashion Week earlier this month.
