Since 2012, Ford Motors has worked with Unifi to bring environmentally responsible, highperformance
REPREVE fi ber to many Ford vehicles including the all-new F-150. By substituting with this recycled material, Ford says it will divert more than five million plastic bottles from landfills this year.

Ford is the only automaker to use REPREVE fiber, made from 100 percent recycled materials including plastic bottles, in its vehicles, a company press release stated. Ford is currently using REPREVE in five vehicles around the world to reduce, reuse and recycle as part of the company’s global sustainability strategy to lessen its environmental
footprint.
“By using REPREVE in the all-new Ford F-150, we are reconfi rming our commitment to using
renewable and recyclable materials in our vehicles,” said Carol Kordich, lead designer, global sustainability materials strategy development. “We are always looking for ways to incorporate more innovative and sustainable materials into our vehicles.”
