New Era Cap Launches Licensed NBA Hat Made With Bottles

New Era Cap Co. has debuted its first official National Basketball Association (NBA) cap made with plastic bottles, featuring the Portland Trail Blazers, thanks to the use of REPREVE® recycled fiber. The new, environmentally conscious New Era 9FIFTY® cap launched exclusively with the Trail Blazers, coincided with NBA Green Week. Each hat is made using four recycled plastic bottles.
REPREVE is a recycled fiber made from plastic bottles, created by textile manufacturer, Unifi, Inc. To ensure that products made with REPREVE are traceable, transparent and environmentally responsible, Unifi utilizes its proprietary U TRUST™ verification program.
U TRUST is a third-party, comprehensive certification program that is designed to provide REPREVE customers with a high level of transparency. Unifi uses FIBERPRINT technology to certify the level of REPREVE content.
