There are considerable environmental benefits to purchasing a Kanata ECO friendly fleece product, using Repreveï¿½ yarn, created by Unifi, a U.S. based producer of polyester and nylon.
Repreveï¿½ yarn is made from 100% recycled content.
-made responsibly, to make a difference and create a sustainable textile solution.
Post consumer waste, including pop bottles (P.E.T.), is ground up and melted into plastic chips from which new fibers are extruded and then spun into yarns. The yarn is 100% recycled which provides huge benefits to the earth and the environment:
* All this recycled waste, including millions of pop bottles, is saved from going into our landfills.
* As a result of the manufacturing and handling processes that are eliminated in the production of recycled fleece, every product using Repreveï¿½ yarn conserves petroleum-based resources by offsetting the need to produce virgin polyester.
* On average every pound of Repreveï¿½ polyester yarn conserves the equivalent of half a gallon of gasoline.
In addition, the purchase of a Kanata ECO fleece product gives back to the environment. Unifi has pledged to donate one percent of annual Repreveï¿½ yarn sales to "reprieve" our environment. Customers can make a difference by casting a vote for how this is distributed using the code provided on the hangtag attached to their product.
