Made with sustainable REPREVE® fabric, because small choices can have a BIG impact!
We love exploring the great outdoors: camping in the backcountry, hunting and fishing across the seasons, and hiking new trails to discover more of our wonderful world. That's why we're committing to making sustainable gear like the Ridgeline Impact Hoodie: because we love nature and want to preserve it. By constructing the Impact with high-quality, certified REPREVE® performance fibres, we're creating outdoor gear that's good for you and our planet.
If you're looking for recycled clothing, make a positive difference and choose the Impact for your next adventure. It's one small step for you, and one giant leap for our environment.
REPREVE® is the world's leading recycled fibre.
It's made from plastic bottles that would otherwise clog up landfills around the world and pollute the environment.
Its production also preserves finite resources by emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy compared to making 'virgin' (non-recycled) petroleum-based fibre.
While REPREVE® polyester uses recycled plastic, virgin polyester is created by combining coal, ethylene (derived from petroleum), air and water under extremely high heat. Not only does this chemical process require much more energy to perform than simply melting plastic, the coal and ethylene are finite resources that have to be extracted from the earth.
REPREVE fibre is made by Unifi using a shred-weave-wear process:
Discarded plastic bottle
Used plastic bottles are typically discarded,
ending up in dumps and landhll.
Unifi collects these bottles from dumpsites and
thoroughly cleans them.
The bottles are shredded into small pieces and
melted into plastic pellets.
The pellets are transformed into fibres via an extrusion
and texturing (spinning and pulling) process.
Knitted into fabric
The fibres are woven into polyester fabric with embedded
Sweat-wicking, water-repellent and thermoregulating properties.
Ridgeline Impact Hoodies
Ridgeline blends 50% REPREVE® polyester with 50% natural cotton to
form a soft, lightweight yarn that dries quickly. We knit, cut and sew this
yarn to construct our distinctive lmpact hoodie.
By the way, you can't feel the difference between REPREVE® polyester and virgin polyester. REPREVE® fabrics's quality and comfort remains just as high! That's because once the recycled plastic has been cleaned, shredded and melted, it undergoes the same process as virgin plastic.
