PCF Celebrates Over 1.3 Million Plastic Bottles Diverted from Landfills in 2022
Pine Crest Fabrics announces that one of our 2022 sustainability goals has been reached! Our fabrics diverted over 1 million plastic bottles from landfills last year! We cannot be more thrilled to have reached this achievement. Thanks to the REPREVE® Recycled Polyester fiber, we are able to track exactly how many plastic bottles were recycled by our fabrics.
REPREVE® Recycled Polyester Repurposes Plastic Waste
The high-performance REPREVE® Recycled Polyester fiber can be found in some of the biggest brands in activewear, outdoor wear, fashion, and yoga apparel. This fiber is renowned for its performance qualities as well as for reclaiming plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in landfills. UNIFI, the company behind REPREVE, is known to be leading the way in establishing a more circular textile industry rather than a linear one.
PCF is thrilled to carry fabrics that are made with this fiber and continue working towards greater sustainability both in our practices and our products. So, which fabrics were responsible for this PCF landmark achievement? Let’s explore the three fabrics that helped get us there.
