CSO recycled hoody

Country Squirrel Outfitters Recycled Hoodie

This new eco-friendly CSO hoodie is a "must -have". Made responsibly by Recover  Brands in North Carolina.  This super soft and comfy hoodie is made of recycled plastic bottles. A great gift idea for the holiday shopping season.

Here’s the breakdown: First, they collect and sort post-consumer plastic bottles, stripping them of all labels and caps. Next, they salvage cotton from discarded industry scraps, which are also sorted by color and blended with polyester. The reclaimed fiber is then spun into yarn and knit into fabric, which is ultimately cut and sewn into a garment. With our proprietary process, we’re able to make fibers that are “first quality,” which makes them look and feel great.
