We are thrilled for our friends and fellow 1% For The Planet members at REPREVE/Unifi for the addition of a fiber made from 100% post-consumer bottles. RESTORE® CLOTHING looks forward to incorporating fabrics from this fiber into our collection.  Having better, more sustainable materials to work with fuels, drives, and excites us.

Unifi/Repreve has also introduced a verification program called U TRUST™ for traceability and verifiability in analyzing the level of REPREVE® content in a product.

According to Roger Berrier, Unifi/REPREVE® Executive VP “The U Trust™ verification demonstrates our commitment to integrity and authenticity, which are part of Unifi’s core values.”

Working with suppliers like Unifi/REPREVE® allows us to deliver product that is in alignment with our values confidently.

We are making a real difference. We are joined by thousands of New Yorkers who have chosen clean power, making a significant impact  on the environment and the air we breathe. The cumulative impact of these New Yorkers lowers carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by more than 480,000,000 pounds per year, a reduction equivalent to planting over 175,000 acres of trees or taking over 40,000 cars off the road!

Check Your Local Air Quality

What Is the Air-Quality Index?

The AQI is a method devised by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for rating each day’s air quality. The AQI numbers are associated with a color, a level of health concern and measures people should take to avoid exposure to the unhealthy air. It correlates levels of different pollutants to one scale; the higher the AQI value, the greater the health concern.
