REPREVE | Turning Plastic Bottles into Something New [+GIVEAWAY]

Today's post is sponsored by Repreve, a fiber made from plastic bottles. Who knew the plastic bottles you recycle could be turned into hats, coats, car interiors, swimsuits, reusable shopping bags and more?
What is Repreve?
Repreve is a fiber made from recycled plastic bottles. Those bottles are cleaned and chopped into flakes and then turned into something called Repreve chip. The chip is melted and extruded to make fiber.

This fiber is made into sustainable fabrics that are then used to make things we can wear and use. Like the Denali North Face jackets and these lime green beanies {that pro-snowboarder Elena Hight will be wearing at the 2014 X-Games in Aspen!}.

What products use Repreve?
One Patagonia fleece jacket with REPREVE contains 40 recycled plastic bottles! Other brands that use REPREVE include Polartec, Beija-Flor, Ford, Haggar, Blue Avocado, ECO Swim, and SwiftWick.
