In an effort to reduce ocean waste, Thibaut released a plush line of performance fabrics composed of recycled plastics. The Club Velvet collection was created using nearly 400,000 post-consumer plastic bottles (PET)—a number that will continue to grow as more fabric is produced. And for every yard purchased, the brand will donate one dollar to the Ocean Blue Project (a nonprofit environmental organization that recovers microplastics from beaches and waterways).
