PCNA is doing recycled clothing

15 Jan

RINCON Packable Jacket

So this is kind of a big deal. PCNA, one of the leading manufacturers in the promotional products industry, is now offering recycled clothing options inside their TRIMARK line.

First, let’s remind everyone why TRIMARK is already a category killer for promotional apparel. 1) One stop pricing that includes decoration, 2) Multiple decoration options including deboss, embroidery, and laser engrave 3) Male and female companions for most items, 4) Free virtuals program.

So PCNA is adding to that lineup recycled clothing options.

Let take a look at the RINCON Packable Jacket. The jacket is available in five colors; white, vintage red, metro blue, loden, black/silver. The male jackets run S – 5XL, ladies jackets run XS – 3XL. Production is 5-7 days from art approval.

On materials, the outer shell is 60% Polyester and 40% Recycled polyester 240T woven with water resistant coating (600mm) & water repellent finish, 80 g/m² (2.4 oz/yd²).

Here is the pitch from the website.

“Good for your style, even better for the planet. The Rincon is made with recycled polyester and even has recycled zipper tape. It’s also wind- and water-resistant with a roll-away hood to keep you drier longer and it’s got a mesh lining and breathable back vents to keep you cool and comfy. Color pop details for extra style points. It even packs away into a built-in stuff sack for easy stowing.”

Again, I want to stress that TRIMARK is a excellent, award setting brand in promotional apparel. I expect nothing less in comfort, quality, and style in their new line of EcoSmart Apparel. I also expect that PCNA will continue to add to this line in the coming months.

If you are interested in these products to promote your own business, or if you wish to see some samples, email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

And as always, if you really want to do something sustainable, do not buy promotional products. All products are consumption at one level or another. So if you must buy, 1) Buy local (i.e. made in USA), 2) Buy useful, long lasting items, 3) Buy sustainable/recycled/recyclable products if possible.
