Values are what shape us at VC Ultimate. We hold ourselves to a higher standard; always working to innovate for the better of our customers, ourselves and the environment.
We realize that may be a bold statement; please allow us to explain. We have redeveloped our signature FlexLight material to be made of 100% post-consumer recycled polyester, as outlined in the Global Recycled Standards (version 4.0).
What does this mean?
All VC sublimated gear made in Canada from FlexLight (i.e. custom team jerseys, shorts, and tanks) will be created from this new greener material. Don’t worry, we're sure you won’t be able to feel the difference: this new material has the same weight, feel and amazing performance characteristics that you’ve come to love in our regular FlexLight.
Here's a photo of the sample recycled jersey we designed. Can't tell a difference, right?
You might notice that the fabric is slightly shinier, colours are more vibrant, and occasionally a few tiny woven specs appear. This is an unavoidable characteristic of the recycled fabric and, to be honest – not very noticeable.
The only real change is that our new fabric is greener – and therefore better! The only true visible difference will be a VC rubber label featuring a green highlight.
Our first substantial order of the new Recycled FlexLight is here and ready for orders! Starting in March, all custom sublimated jersey orders will be created from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester. How awesome is that?
If you want to be part of the VC Green Movement, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be happy to get your jersey order started, so you can look great this upcoming season while knowing you’re doing your part to reduce your ecological footprint.
