Moogfest to feature SustainU's 100% recycled US-made apparel

SustainU, a leading producer of high quality apparel using fabrics made from 100% recycled materials manufactured in the US, has been announced as the official apparel provider for Moogfest, a 3-day music festival in Asheville, NC honoring music visionary Robert Moog.

"SustainU is honored to be the official apparel provider for Moogfest," said SustainU CEO, Chris Yura. "Robert Moog was ahead of his time, opening new frontiers in the music world. Our mission at SustainU is to transcend what has been done before in sustainable apparel."

As a North Carolina-based manufacturer, SustainU has created hundreds of new jobs in the Carolina textile region and hopes to give consumers an environmentally and socially conscious alternative when it comes to clothing.

"We are proud to partner with SustainU because we understand the positive impact something as simple as a concert T-shirt can have on the environment and in bringing jobs back to the US," said Jeff Cuellar, Director of Connectivity for AC Entertainment, producer of Moogfest and also the well-known music festival, Bonnaroo. "Many Americans don't know the difference they can make with their clothing, old and new."

As part of the Moogfest activities, SustainU and AC Entertainment are encouraging attendees to bring old clothes and shoes to the registration area. Donations to the "Moog Mountain" will benefit local charities who give items for those in need or even recycle the textiles for other uses.

"It is estimated that the average American throws away sixty-eight pounds of clothing each year," said Yura, "and that accounts for about 10% of all waste in our landfills. The great thing about textiles is that almost all of it can be reused somewhere and many of the organizations that collect clothing use donations to also support job training programs."

As an incentive to donate to the Moog Mountain, participants will be entered in a drawing to win VIP passes to Moogfest 2012, Moogfest 2011 merchandise and invitations to secret shows during the festival.

SustainU is an American clothing company focused on changing the way clothes are made to improve the environment, reinvigorate America's manufacturing sector, and educate the world about how clothing can positively impact people's lives. By creating 100% recycled apparel that's made in the USA, we want people to change the way they think about their clothing, and how they live their lives.

Moogfest is the annual event that honors the remarkable vision of Robert Moog and his amazing musical inventions that changed the course of music.
