The Repreve(R) website is just one of the many initiatives that Unifi is introducing under its new "Repreve(R). For the Planet" campaign, which supports Unifi's ongoing initiatives in providing the market with sustainable textile solutions.

As part of the initiative, the website will educate and build awareness among the textile industry and end-consumers about the environmental benefits of Repreve(R) recycled yarns and the connection between industry and the environment.

"Unifi is taking a unique and transparent approach in educating consumers and the industry about the benefits of Repreve(R) recycled yarns while involving them in the process of doing more in supporting environmental efforts," said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi.
