Unifi, Inc., makers of REPREVE®, the leading recycled fiber, has launched a new sustainable solution that allows customers and consumers to help solve the ever-growing problem of ocean plastic pollution. REPREVE® Our Ocean™ fiber is created from bottles collected within 50 kilometers of coasts in countries or areas without established garbage or recycling programs, addressing the fundamental source of ocean plastic.
Jay Hertwig, Senior Vice President of Global Brand Sales for Unifi, said that REPREVE Our Ocean is a premium collection of fiber and resin obtained from bottles that are at high danger of entering the ocean. For years, they've been converting billions of plastic bottles into REPREVE recycled fiber to protect air, land, and natural resources. REPREVE Our Ocean is a project that aims to restore our ocean. They provide a one-of-a-kind chance for companies to convey an ocean-focused story with REPREVE Our Ocean.
At least 8.8 million tons of plastics are dumped into the ocean each year, the equivalent of one garbage truck discharging its contents into the ocean every minute. Furthermore, at least 80% of plastic enters the waters from land, and at present rates, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050.
Hertwig added that forward-thinking firms who want to make an even more explicit statement about saving the environment—and want to take a greater position in addressing ocean pollution—now have a brand new choice. REPREVE Our Ocean is designed for the betterment of tomorrow, and this high-end product will appeal to people who want to do all possible to help conserve the environment for future generations.
REPREVE Our Ocean fiber will be on show at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (booth 55129-UL) in Denver, Colorado, on June 18-20.
