EARTHTEC, an innovative, eco-conscious company that turns recyclable plastic bottles into lifestyle apparel, has entered a partnership with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats minor league baseball team to collaborate on both EARTHTEC's and the Fisher Cats' commitment towards sustainability. EARTHTEC uses revolutionary technologies to break down and convert plastic water bottles into stylish, functional and long-lasting eco-apparel, as described in a recent segment on WMUR's NH Chronicle.

Their staff is excited to show off their new eco-friendly EARTHTEC soft-shell jackets on Opening Day, and can also proudly wear their recycled lifestyle apparel as a badge on Earth Day as well, just one week later on April 22nd. The Fisher Cats are excited to join with other local organizations, like the University of New Hampshire, that have seen great results from their partnership with EARTHTEC. UNH and EARTHTEC recently combined on a green giveaway at a University of New Hampshire Men's Hockey game, where EARTHTEC distributed 6,000 eco-friendly fleece hats to attendees. The Fisher Cats are looking forward to working with EARTHTEC as part of their ongoing efforts to become more eco-conscious.

“It's great to know that organizations like the Fisher Cats and the UNH Wildcats are adopting and encouraging eco-friendly behaviors,” said Dennis Randall, Owner and CEO of EARTHTEC. “The feedback we've gotten as a result of the UNH hat giveaway has been tremendously positive, resulting in wonderful new relationships with other local sports teams like the Fisher Cats. We hope to extend our relationships to other sports organizations in New England and nationally, as we all try to do our part to help make our planet cleaner and greener.”

“We're excited about our new partnership with EARTHTEC, and we're pleased to share their earth-friendly practices, products and enthusiasm by simply wearing great apparel,” said Fisher Cats President/General Manager Rick Brenner. “Wearing clothes made out of recycled materials is a great reminder for us to strive to be as green as possible.”

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, is proud to serve the entire state of New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts. Through extensive community outreach programs, affordable pricing and a first class entertainment experience at Merchantsauto.com Stadium, the Fisher Cats have become New Hampshire's premier outdoor entertainment destination.

EARTHTEC produces “accountable apparel” by turning recycled plastic water bottles into comfortable, functional, stylish, and affordable clothing. Based in Portsmouth, NH, EARTHTEC is one of the first companies of its kind. Each garment in the EARTHTEC collection uses approximately 12 recycled water bottles – and prevents these bottles from ending up in a landfill.
