Recover is an apparel company that produces their shirts from 100% recycled material, specifically plastic bottles.
Their HQ is just outside of Uptown.
Each of their shirts is made from 8 recycled plastic bottles — the 50/50 shirt is 50% cotton, 50% recycled material while the sport tees are made from 100% recycled material.
Recover has produced mass orders before, such as one for the New York Yankees which provided a T-shirt to every fan in the stadium.
That order called for 18,000 shirts.
The company is now set to make the shirts for the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon this year.
There will be five different colors for each individual race. The shirts are currently in production.
Recover is hosting a promo event for the marathon tonight at 6:30 p.m.
Attendees will run two miles or four miles followed by a hangout sesh with drinks afterwards.
You can follow the company on Facebook here or find them at 1518 Bryant Street.
