The World is our Ocean: Next Level Apparel’s Sustainable Collection

Sustainability is a popular topic that’s only becoming more important as the effects of global warming, overflowing landfills and plastic pollution in oceans take their toll on our earth’s eco-system. With the upcoming months including calendar events that increase awareness about sustainability and environmentalism (such as Earth Day on April 22, World Environment Day on June 5 and World Oceans Day on June 8), now’s the perfect time to engage in conversations about sustainable promo apparel with your clients.

Next level Apparel (asi/73867) embraces protecting our beautiful planet and is relentless in finding the best options in every area of their business. Whether through recycling, implementing paperless offices or using organic and recycled materials in their products, Next Level Apparel (NLA) is committed to reducing their carbon footprint. One example of this is Next Level’s Sustainable T-shirt Collection.

Since 2019, Next Level has been an advocate of sustainable apparel and demonstrated by the creation of their Sustainable Collection, made in part from Repreve® polyester fabric. This recycled fabric is created through the RPET process by taking plastic bottles, transforming them into thread and then weaving those threads into polyester. Each T-shirt from NLA’s Sustainable Collection is made from four plastic bottles, which means every shirt you sell prevents four bottles from ending up in landfills, or worse, our oceans. Remember: every recycled plastic bottle is a step towards a cleaner world, and the Sustainable Collection makes it easy to look good and do good for our planet at the same time.

Fun Fact: Through NLA’s Sustainable Collection, the supplier has recycled over 5 million plastic bottles since its launch – and that’s just the beginning!

Let’s take a deep dive into the styles of this small collection that’s making a big difference for the preservation of our beautiful environment.
