Chain Of Custody Recycling
Campus for GREEN “chain of custody” recycling helps you tell your recycling story implementing closed loop recycling that turns your old bottles into brand new Campus for GREEN sustainable apparel and products. Through our “chain of custody” recycling, we track your recyclables through the entire eco-supply chain. It starts with Campus for GREEN collecting and shipping your recyclables direct from your school to our recycling mills. At our mills we implement the recycling process, where bottles get chopped up, washed and turned into clean flakes, melted, then purified and extruded into sustainable raw material pellets. The pellets are spun into fiber that gets embedded with UPF sun protectant, antimicrobial, moisture wicking, and 4-way stretch technologies. The fiber is taken straight through the apparel re-manufacturing process and made into sustainable yarns and fabrics, then turned into Campus for GREEN sustainable apparel and campus products.
