Three companies to launch National T-Shirt Recycling Program

Apr '08
As part of the Season 2 kick-off of "The Green" on Sundance Channel, the network has partnered with Barneys New York and the eco-chic fashion brand Loomstate to launch a first of its kind, national T-shirt recycling program.

Beginning April 13th, consumers will be encouraged to drop off old t-shirts at all Barneys' locations nationwide. Loomstate will "re-fashion" the T-shirts (re-style, re-dye, re-print, etc.) to create a new, limited edition T-shirt collection to be sold exclusively at Barneys for Holiday 2008.

Participating consumers will receive a 20% discount on women's Loomstate for Barneys Green and men's Loomstate merchandise from April 13-27. Proceeds from the program will benefit 1% for the Planet.

"With THE GREEN, Sundance Channel hopes to inspire viewers to make changes in their lives and let them know that they don't have to sacrifice style, quality or design to make a positive impact on the planet," says Larry Aidem, President and CEO of Sundance Channel.

"Our alliance with Barneys and Loomstate creates another opportunity for Sundance Channel viewers to participate in a creative and unique program that benefits them and the planet.

As the first network to dedicate a primetime TV destination to environmental programming, we are committed to seeking out ways to illustrate that 'going green' is both a movement and priority for all of us."

Designed by Rogan Gregory and Scott Hahn, Loomstate uses 100 percent certified organic materials to make eco-luxe clothing.
