University of Utah Campus Store to Carry Sustainable Apparel
“We’re excited to now be offered at the University of Utah Campus Store, and to work with them to encourage the recycling of clothing,” says Chris Yura, founder and CEO of SustainU. “One of our goals as a company is to educate the campus and broader community at-large about the benefits of recycling clothes. It’s a little known fact that they can be re-purposed to make fabric for new apparel. We believe if we can change the way we think about clothes, we can change the world.”
“By using recycled materials and clothing to make high-quality fabrics for new apparel, we can have a positive impact on the environment,” Yura said.
SustainU is at the forefront of creating clothing from recycled materials. The fabric used in its apparel is produced from post-consumer plastic bottles, recycled cotton and post-industrial textile waste, and is manufactured in Raleigh, North Carolina.
SustainU produces high-performance apparel using fabrics made from 100% recycled materials that are manufactured in the USA to provide extraordinary comfort and wear, while reducing environmental waste, carbon emissions and water use. Our mission is to change the way clothes are made to improve the environment, reinvigorate America’s manufacturing sector, and educate the world about how clothing can positively impact people’s lives.
