The Swim Bike Family has gone a little “green.”
We just signed the papers for a Nissan Leaf. That’s right. The electric car. Woot. With the Expert and me commuting about 75 miles a day (which is down from our previous 155 miles per day, thanks to relocating), we were tired of spending the gas and the emissions. The transition to the electric car (which we will take turns using) is a seamlessly great idea.
And in the spirit of going even a little greener… I am starting to wear recycled materials. What? Whaaaa? Okay… here’s the scoop.
So who has heard of Repreve? I am guessing not a whole lot of us. I hadn’t heard of it until just recently. I think this is one of the cooler things I have ever been asked to “review” on my blog–and I learned so much too.
Repreve recycled fiber is used by leading brands to make the products more sustainable. When you buy products made with Repreve we’re helping to create a reprieve for our planet. Did you know that products that you already USE are made out of RECYCLED MATERIALS? I was amazed at this list (go here to read!).
To name a few: one Patagonia fleece jacket with Repreve has 40 recycled plastic bottles, so you can be a real “active-ist.” And Life Khaki by Haggar uses Repreve to put 7 recycled plastic bottles in every pair of pants; so wear what you believe.
The really cool thing is that many products YOU KNOW are already using Repreve recycled fibers!
And Repreve is giving away a winter beanie…. made out of, you guessed it, Repreve fibers!
