Unifi, Inc. siad its Repreve brand of 100% recycled yarn will be the focus of the Discovery Channel television program “How It’s Made.” The segment will highlight the unique production processes to manufacture Repreve®, a first-quality 100% recycled yarn.

The “How It’s Made” film crew visited Unifi’s Yadkinville, NC manufacturing facility to document the production of Repreve, making Unifi the first U.S. textile mill to be featured on the show. The episode will air on the Discovery Channel during season 12 (begins January 2009).

“Global sustainability is an issue that people are becoming increasingly aware of,” said Robert Morselli, director of research for “How It’s Made.” “It directly affects our communities and, ultimately, each one of us as an individual. In the corporate world, some organizations have taken the lead in promoting awareness of global sustainability by educating consumers about their product’s origins and manufacturing these products in a way that ultimately benefits the environment.”

“I have identified Unifi and Repreve as examples of these corporate leaders; this is why we have selected them to participate in the taping of a ‘How It’s Made’ episode,” added Morselli.
