Haggar's LK Life Khaki™ Line Featuring Repreve® Marks 14 Million Bottles Recycled
Dallas-based men's apparel manufacturer Haggar Clothing Co. reports that more than 14 million
plastic bottles have been recycled within the first year of production of its LK Life Khaki™ pants
-- a collection of casual khaki pants for young consumers. The fabrics used comprise a blend of
cotton and Greensboro, N.C.-based Unifi Inc.'s Repreve® recycled polyester fiber. Each pair of LK
Life Khaki pants contains the equivalent of seven recycled plastic bottles.
"Our work with the LK Life Khaki brand is an exciting opportunity to educate the consumer that plastic bottles don't belong in landfills; they can be recycled into products like casual clothes, performance apparel, socks and even car interiors," said Roger Berrier, president and COO, Unifi.
