REPREVE #TurnItGreen Contest

If you weren’t already in the know, REPREVE is a recycled fiber used by leading brands to make products you know and love more sustainable. This year you can watch REPREVE at the Winter X Games where Brand Ambassadors (X Games professionals) will sport their products on the slopes.

In this video below, I show off a toque (“beanie” in the U.S.) made from 6 recycled plastic bottles. Pretty cool stuff if you ask me. You can make your own video sharing your sustainable lifestyle tips on Twitter, Instagram or Vine with the hashtag #TurnItGreen. One lucky person will take home $5,000 so be sure to enter!

Thank you to REPREVE for sponsoring today’s discussion and for helping me spread the word about recycled fibers.
