REPREVE: Turn It Green (Beanie Giveaway)

Friday, December 27, 2013



During the holidays when there seems to be such an excess of everything, it's nice to find ways that we can save a little and be friendly to our environment while still enjoying the celebration, gifts, and abundance of love!

Just before Christmas I was offered the opportunity to work with REPREVE and my response was Yes! Absolutely. We are avid recyclers and try to be environmentally aware as much as we are able. We do things like using animal and kid friendly products in our home and yard, biodegradable toxin free diapers, cold water laundry, and we are fortunate enough to live in a city that has public recycling. There's more, but we aren't perfect and I'll be sharing more about that in the new year. Today I just want to introduce you to REPREVE because before last week, I didn't know either!


REPREVE is a recycled fiber that helps turn plastic bottles you recycle into cool stuff you can wear and use every day. Now there’s no excuse not to recycle!

A lot of brands you love use REPREVE to make their products greener:

Something for Everyone made from Recycled Water Bottles!


• Volcom graphic t-shirts are made with REPREVE, using 2 recycled plastic bottles.
• One Patgonia fleece jacket with REPREVE has 40 recycled plastic bottles, so you can be a real “active-ist.”
• Life Khaki by Haggar uses REPREVE to put 7 recycled plastic bottles in every pair of pants; so wear what you believe.

Other brands made with REPREVE: The North Face, Polartec, Patagonia, Beija-Flor, Lauren Conrad’s XO(eco) by Blue Avocado, Swiftwick socks, and more. 



REPREVE sent us these beanies so that we can better share with you! I can tell you - they are warm and bright so great for being spotted if you are out on the road walking or running! These will be their swag they are giving away at the X Games next month in Aspen! They gave us TWO, so I'm giving one to one of you! See below for details after you check out how recycling and REPREVE works! 



Want a beanie made from 6 recycled bottles of water!?
