We often dream about unique partnerships in the textiles industry, but sometimes it is the most unsurprising partners that surface that make us the most excited. When a connection to Red Bull came up – they were in search of sustainable giveaways for a couple upcoming events – the Reborn team was all in.

Red Bull Amaphiko: Launch Pad for Social Entrepreneurs

What was a company known for their energy drinks interested in doing with Reborn? The folks at Red Bull have put together some incredible opportunities for entrepreneurs and change-makers to give wings to these people and their ideas.

One program is Red Bull Amaphiko, a launch pad for grassroots social entrepreneurs making a positive difference in their community. They host collaborative events around the world to provide training to entrepreneurs around storytelling. The program ultimately gives you the tools to take your idea from initial brainstorming to an up-and-running initiative or company.

Sustainable, Local Products Elevate NC Red Bull Events

At the Red Bull Amaphiko event in Durham, NC, in April 2019, each of the students from NC State, Duke, and UNC-CH who were invited to attend received a reusable Reborn tote bag that we made from repurposed material from Cotton Incorporated, one of our partners. Reborn Founder & CEO, Emily Neville, attended this event and spoke to the group about the company behind their giveaways.

At Moogfest 2019 in Durham, NC, Red Bull gave two cans of Red Bull to each VIP attendee inside a Reborn durable zipper pouch. We made these from repurposed material from one of our manufacturing partners in Tennessee. The Reborn team created each product out of our facility in Raleigh, NC.

Our Products: They’re for the Mainstream Market

Reborn isn’t just for the obvious sustainability partners. We’re not about being on the fringe for a select group of companies or individuals.

Reborn is for anyone looking to incorporate value-added, sustainable products into their community. Red Bull gives wings – not just to the tired passerby on I40 or the weary college student before an exam – but to the passionate, the change-makers, and to anyone on the brink of something great. Red Bull gives wings, and gives back. As for Reborn – we’re more than happy to help.
