Kenai Sports Makes Sportswear from Waste

Kenai Sports makes custom clothing from waste items like plastic bottles, cell phone cases, keyboards, coconut shells, corn husks, soybean shells and more.

Kenai Sports is an innovative sportswear brand that makes custom clothing from waste items like plastic bottles, cell phone cases, keyboards, coconut shells, corn husks, soybean shells and more. Some of Kenai’s customers include college and university athletic programs, corporations, nonprofits and government offices.

In addition, the company has a closed loop program that allows customers to send garments back to Kenai at the end of its life to be broken down and reentered into the production process.

Apparel Magazine has more details:

They say one man's trash is another man's treasure, and that couldn't be more true of Kenai Sports. This innovative sportswear brand makes clothing out of trash.

Yes, you heard that right. Trash. Each day, the company removes or diverts "tons" of plastic bottles, cell phone cases, keyboards, and organic waste such as coconut shells, corn husks, soybean shells, and more, from landfills, and then turns it into sportswear. Not only does the company eliminate trash from landfills and recycle it into useable items, but it also does all of that here in North America, providing jobs and helping to boost the local economy.
