News & Record columnist, Jeri Rowe, tours the REPREVE plant to learn all about how the brand turns recycled plastic bottles into cool new products, like the Greensboro Coliseum’s new banners lining the concourse.


“Last year, the company [Unifi] reported a profit of $73 million. Repreve has definitely helped. Production rose from 5 million pounds in 2007 to 42 million pounds in 2011. After several plant expansions, Unifi will have the capacity to make more than 70 million pounds a year by the end of this year.


…It's because of that thing we've all held in our hands: a plastic bottle.”
