GREENSBORO, N.C.-Unifi continues its support as an official recycling partner of the 80th annual Wyndham Championship. The Wyndham Championship and Unifi collectively recycle bottles from the event for use in producing Unifi’s REPREVE textile fibers.
“At Unifi, we are committed to helping increase recycling rates and keeping plastic bottles out of landfills and our oceans,” says Tom Caudle, president and chief operating officer of Unifi. “Our partnership with the Wyndham Championship demonstrates the importance and impact of recycling and how the transformation of recycled bottles into new products results in a greener, more sustainable event and helps to protect our local natural resources.”
As part of the partnership, Wyndham apparel stores at the tournament offer a selection of tournament-branded products made from REPREVE recycled fibers. The collaboration also features REPREVE recycling bins throughout the course and a portable station that educates visitors on the construction of the fiber, known as the REPREVE Mobile Tour.
The tournament takes place Jul. 30-Aug. 4 at Sedgefield Country Club near Unifi’s Greensboro, North Carolina headquarters.
