Recycled PET Fabric
Recycling is the process of taking an otherwise-discarded item or material and cleaning, sorting, and breaking it down into its basic form (such as fibers or pellets). This material is then used to produce new items. Recycling keeps useful materials from being discarded in landfills, prevents resource extraction due to the creation of new materials, and provides a new life for used items. Recycling can utilize both pre-consumer waste (materials left over from production) or post-consumer materials (used clothing, empty water bottles, etc). Recycled PET utilizes salvaged post-industrial PET scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers. These plastics are dried, crushed, and spun into yarn in order to create recycled PET fabric, or polyester. By providing a use for recycled plastics, companies encourage recycling programs worldwide, while adding new value to discarded items. Currently, over half of virgin PET production goes towards making textiles, so by utilizing recycled PET, post-consumer materials are both diverting waste while taking the place of raw materials. This helps to reduce the demand for the extraction of oil, as well as energy used to produce new synthetic fibers.


Founded in 2009 by two bikers in North Carolina, Recover is always seeking better. Founders Bill Johnston and John Riddle decided that they wanted to make stylish and comfortable clothing while protecting and respecting the environment around them. Using plastic bottles and cotton from industrial scraps, they're making use of already-made materials rather than extracting new resources. The Recover team pays close attention to their entire production process, using very little dyes (most of their color comes from their cotton scraps!), very few chemicals, and far less water and energy than traditional clothing manufacturers. Recover has also completely eliminated plastic packaging, fortifying their promise to sustainability. In addition to their well-rounded focus on the environment, Recover employs workers in Haiti and Guatemala, using fair wages and safe working conditions. Recover's dedicated attention to sustainability and social responsibility deems them a brand that we fully support!

Great Backpack, worth the buy

It took me a while to review this after buying it. With social distancing and not going out I didn't have much need for it after I got it), but I have used it a number of times, especially while biking, and I absolutely love it. It's sturdy and roomy but also has some give so it can be packed to the max. It's got the handy extra zip pocket and in the main compartment there is space for a computer. I haven't put a computer in there yet so not sure how that will feel (I'm used to computers having a completely separate compartment) but even without that this bag was worth the buy and will most likely last a long time. It also looks pretty cool on!
