Sharing a comment from Nancy at JV & Company Minneapolis MN

Hi Celeste,

Busy with the Babette trunk show this week and next week we concentrate on RESTORE , so far we have 30 reservations and only room for an additional 18! This is a great response!

My staff and our clients love the “show and tell” that I brought home from NY. the REPREVE triple box of plastic and fabric is a great visual and the comments have been so positive, one woman booked 3 reservations after we “shared” the visual piece with her and her comment was” this is incredible I had no idea! “ One by one YOU are making a difference ! I am so pleased to know you and I am learning so much from you as are my clients! Just think how far reaching and the impact RESTORE is making! Keep up the good work! Best to Anthony, so wish he could join us but I know someone must “tend the store” there will be another time I am certain!

See you very soon!

The Ecollection at MAGIC, Las Vegas was in a word …


MAGIC, from an educational, community building and commerce standpoint. We left feeling RESTORED!

Introducing our fabric DREAM made from REPREVE® recycled 6,6 nylon fulfilled one for us, we now work on another dream of being the first to bring it to market.

We attended Ecollection knowing that REPREVE® is working on instituting a garment recycling program which would make it logistically simple for a small company like ours to implement a garment take back / recycling program. Meeting the fine folks from SUSTAINABLE COTTON PROJECT, further propel our work to it’s roots and the connectedness of working more directly with the cotton farmer. We have always thought they should be treated like the Rock Stars they are. We welcome the opportunity to do so.

Grateful we are for the bonding we did with our community, 1% for the planet, the organic exchange, other exhibiting “green” friends and the organizers. We loved being able to tell our RESTORY to all that dropped by our booth.
