Fruit of the Loom, maker of the iconic FRUIT OF THE LOOM® branded apparel, is partnering with leading materials science company, Recover Textile Systems, S.L., maker of Recover™ fiber, to release a new collection of classic, unisex t-shirts beginning today.
With inclusive sizing and responsibly sourced fabric and material, each sustainably designed t-shirt is made with 20% Recover™ best-in-class recycled cotton fiber and is available in eight colors. Each t-shirt is priced at $15. The limited-edition collection will be available for purchase starting August 30 on Fruit.com and Amazon, while supplies last.
The new Recover™ cotton t-shirt collection is one of the many ways Fruit of the Loom is delivering against their goal to “increase sustainable sourcing across key materials” as outlined in the company’s global sustainability plan, Fruitful Futures™. The plan documents specific commitments across three key pillars—People-Centric, Planet-Conscious and Product Authenticity.
The partnership with Recover and the use of their cotton enables the company to offer a circular sustainable program that utilizes textile production waste to create high-quality recycled cotton fiber. Recover’s proprietary recycled cotton fiber is one of the lowest-impact fibers available in the market, significantly reducing the carbon and water footprint of the apparel produced with the fiber. By partnering with Recover, Fruit of the Loom continues to demonstrate its innovation and commitment to sustainability.
