...IT ALL STARTED WITH A BICYCLE In the fall of 2009, I was in the market for a road bike and John Riddle had one to sell. At the time, I was a recent college grad working for an outdoor adventure company guiding backpacking and mountaineering trips, and John was a 25-year textile veteran in the yarn business. John and I became fast friends and started riding together regularly through the hills of Western North Carolina. After many lengthy conversations during those afternoon rides, we decided to put our skills and interests together and start Recover. From the beginning, the idea was to make the most environmentally friendly and socially responsible products possible. We also wanted Recover to represent something greater than the products we were making - we wanted Recover to stand for something people could feel good about. Today, the philosophy remains the same, and our mission is more important now than ever. Recover’s process is 360° from design to manufacturing to fulfillment. It takes materials out of the landfill, reduces the use of water and energy, and minimizes dyes, chemicals, and greenhouse gas emissions significantly compared to traditional processes and products. We are proud to work with local and international communities to build supply chains that benefit people and our planet, and to partner with local, national, and global nonprofits to raise awareness and support environmental and social initiatives. At Recover, motivating businesses, communities and individuals to make sustainable choices that will make tomorrow better drives us. As we venture to constantly improve our products and our processes, we are invariably inspired by those around us. Whether you’re riding your bike to work, ascending a peak in the middle of nowhere, giving a lecture in a classroom, or walking through the neighborhood park with friends, we appreciate your choice to wear Recover. Thank You for being our motivation to never stop working to do it a better way. Sincerely, Bill Johnston

Co-Founder & President

Since 2010 we have diverted 5,175,340 bottles and counting from the landfill.

8 BOTTLES = 1 SHIRT

5. 6. 7. 8.

upcycled cotton is blended with recycled plastic to create a new blended fiber blended fiber is spun into yarn yarn is knitted into fabric fabric is cut and sewn into a Recover Tee


SUPPLY CHAIN

We work with partners in the United States, Haiti, and Guatemala. Some of our products are made right here in North Carolina, while others are made through work co-ops in Haiti. At the end of the day, we believe environmental and social responsibility are global issues and we strive to make products in areas that can have the most positive impact. With our program in Haiti, we supply Made-in-the-Carolinas, 100% recycled fabric to a cut and sew co-op there that aims to create sustainable jobs in developing countries. Their team then uses that material to construct the shirt you end up wearing on a daily basis. The work co-op creates sustainable jobs and living wages for hundreds of workers. The facility in Guatemala is powered by biomass that consists of wood chips, coffee extract, and other raw materials. The wood chips are collected from the local forestry industry.

In the summer, I love Recover tees because I wear them from car to bar with fishing in between. In the winter, I live to ski and wear my Recover Sport every day as my base layer.

- Recover Ambassador Taylor White, RJ Rockers Head Brewer

The pullover hoodie was my first piece of Recover gear to be ‘borrowed’ and then never returned, which is certainly a testament to the product. It passes the ‘is it as comfortable as it looks’ test with anybody who tries one on and it is my go-to hoodie once the brewhouse temps start to drop.

“...AND TO EDUCATE AND INSPIRE THOSE AROUND US TO LIVE AND WORK FOR A SUSTAINABLE TOMORROW.” Every day, Recover aims to create and perform concrete actions that realize our mission. Since 2010, we have diverted 5,175,340 plastic bottles from the landfill. We’re still counting and, as with every Recover tee made and purchased, that number goes up by 8. Beyond our products, our manufacturing process results in a 35% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, 66% reduction in energy consumption, and 55% reduction in water consumption compared to that of a conventionally dyed shirt. At Recover, while we work to create impact in numbers, we also work to create impact that you can’t necessarily quantify. Partnering with local, national and global nonprofits that are environmentally and socially focused, we directly raise funds for these organizations, spread the word about them, and get out in the field to work with them whenever we can. Locally, we volunteer with Mountain True river clean-ups in Western North Carolina to pick up littered trash out of our ecosystems that we then recycle into Recover products. Nationally, we have partnered with such organizations as Earth Day Network and were able to donate $16,000 directly to the organization through the sales of a crowdfunded shirt last April. Through Recover’s Protect Our Parks tee and ongoing campaign, we donate $5 from each shirt sale directly to the National Park Foundation. Globally, we partner with co-ops in Haiti and Guatemala creating sustainable jobs and positive impact in local communities. As a 1% for the Planet member, Recover is committed to donating at least 1% of total sales to nonprofits. To us, impact means action, education, inspiration, and innovation.

IMPACT

8 BOTTLES = 1 SHIRT


RECOVER ARTIST DEVELOPMENT

RAD Music. For all the rhythms, melodies, vibrations, and lyrics, it’s hard to put into words why we love it, but we do. Engaging in the love of music is an integral part of being human, and it’s also an integral part of Recover. In January 2016, Recover started the Recover Artist Development (RAD) program to highlight and support up-and-coming artists. The artists provide the design, Recover provides the apparel, and everyone discovers great music while the word about sustainability spreads. In addition to supplying shirts for RAD artists to sell while they are on the road, Recover also hosts regular concerts at its flagship store in Charlotte as part of the RAD Acoustic Series. The concerts provide an intimate living room setting where artists are able to showcase their work and engage with fans. And of course, in true Recover style, we always work with local craft beer partners at the concerts. Whether we’re working in the Recover warehouse, designing a new shirt, driving to the mountains, or enjoying a night out with friends, music is always playing... from the stereo to the stage. RAD is our way of cultivating that undefinable thing about music that we all love.

Every day is full of potential. For Recover Ambassador Andrew Brodhead, the potential is what makes life an adventure. At Recover, we are constantly looking for ways to stay true to our commitment to give material new life and maximize potential. Riding the wave of innovation, we started using upcycled neoprene material found in surfing, rafting and diving wetsuits to make the Recover Coozie. Revitalizing potential happens to be our forte.
