UNIQLO to Launch Recycled Down Jackets as Part of New Eco-Friendly Initiative
RE.UNIQLO also invites customers to donate their own used down products.
UNIQLO has announced a new recycling program, RE.UNIQLO, turning unwanted clothing into fresh garments. The first product from the program to launch will be recycled puffer jackets made from rejuvenated down taken from 620,000 old jackets collected in Japan.
The sustainable winter jackets will arrive in four versatile colorways: “Dark Gray,” “Dark Orange,” “Brown” and “Dark Green.” Thin yet insulating, the outerwear is detailed with curved stitching and a zippered pocket at the chest. As part of the RE.UNIQLO initiative, customers can bring unwanted down products to UNIQLO stores to be donated or recycled — in return, participants will receive a coupon that can be used online or in-store.
UNIQLO’s recycled down jackets retail for approximately $91 USD and launch on November 9 at select stores and the UNIQLO website.
