Disney has announced that Mickey & Co. has launched a new line of sustainable t-shirts using 50 per cent of Unifi’s Repreve recycled fibre from plastic bottles. Recycled bottles collected from Walt Disney World Resort were turned into Repreve recycled fibre. Repreve is made by Unifi, a leading global textile solutions company, headquartered in the US.
This Earth Month, Disney fans are looking for ways to bring magic and inspiration into their everyday lives. As Disney recognises the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, it also takes a look at the actions the company can make to help shape a positive future.
The Mickey & Co. collection is perfect for vintage lovers who want to show off some ‘80s and ‘90s throwback style. From Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Daisy Duck, to Goofy and Pluto, the gang’s all there in vibrant fashion, according to a press release by Disney.
“Disney’s new retro collection is a wonderful circular economy initiative that shows what can happen when kids of all ages recycle and give bottles can a second life. We’re thrilled to partner with Disney on this iconic collection and help promote the importance of recycling and sustainability,” Jay Hertwig, Unifi’s senior vice president of global sales and marketing said.
