Unifi, Palmetto Synthetics Sign REPREVE® Supply Agreement
"We have a shared vision with Unifi to provide the textile industry with high quality, innovative products, which led us to this supply relationship," said David Poston, vice president, Palmetto Synthetics. "We have seen a big shift in inquiries for a domestically made recycled fiber, and this initiative with Unifi allows us to amplify our domestic efforts."
Unifi's Repreve chip products have been certified for recycled content by Emeryville, Calif.-based Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Global Services and also have been certified to SCS's Responsible Source™ standard for responsible production and compliance with environmental and social regulations.
Palmetto Synthetics will discontinue its NatureSpun® recycled fiber product and replace production with Repreve recycled fiber.
