New CARS Program Announced: Cash For UPF Clothing "Flunkers"

Share Article

When fabrics don't pass the Solar Protective Factory's minimum Ultraviolet Protective Factor, UPF, requirements they are eliminated from SPF's product line and are deemed to be "Flunkers." In the spirit of "Cash For Clunkers" they are offering rebates on apparel purchases and encouraging customers to recycle their old non-sun protective clothing, "Flunkers."

Because apparel items are far less expensive than cars we have scaled our rebate program accordingly. For every $100.00 purchase they will receive an instant 3,500 cents ($35.00) rebate or for every $120.00 they spend they will receive an instant 4,500 cents ($45.00). Furthermore, we trust our customers to recycle, give away, donate or sew into quilts all their old

With all the attention on recycling old, beat up automobiles, an online apparel store has come up with its own C.A.R.S. program called Clothing Allowance Rebate System. The Solar Protective Factory, SPF®, has come up with an instant rebate for customers who recycle their old non-sun protective articles of clothing, nick-named "Flunkers," for new top rated UV protective clothing.

SPFStore.com's Cash For Flunkers encourages their customers to recycle
their old non-UPF rated products for any items at the SPF® store. Every product line at the online SPF® store is independently tested and certified UPF protective according U.S. standards, the most rigorous in the world.

Instead of wearing clothing that has "flunked" the UPF standards, like traditional cotton t-shirts that may only have a UPF rating of 5, SPF® brand t-shirts achieve the maximum ultraviolet protection of UPF 50+.

"People no longer have to wear "flunkers" that allow UVA and UVB to penetrate right to their skin. They can have comfortable cotton shirts that are certified to block more than 97% of UV rays," said Terry Breese, President and Co-founder of the Solar Protective Factory.

"Since there is no government program to subsidize sun aware Americans to move up to higher UPF performance in their apparel we decided to offer our own rebate program. Just like the government program that gives 3,500 to 4,500 dollars to purchase a more efficient car we are offering 3,500 to 4,500 cents to our customers to purchase more UPF efficient apparel," Breese added.

"Because apparel items are far less expensive than cars we have scaled our rebate program accordingly. For every $100.00 purchase they will receive an instant 3,500 cents ($35.00) rebate or for every $120.00 they spend they will receive an instant 4,500 cents ($45.00). Furthermore, we trust our customers to recycle, give away, donate or sew into quilts all their old "flunker" clothes. In fact we are offering an extra 2,000 cents ($20.00) in Solar Bucks for the best recycling ideas submitted that we run on our SPFStore.com website," Breese concluded.

Established in 1989 the Solar Protective Factory (http://www.spfstore.com) offers a full range of ultraviolet protective apparel products for women, men and children. They are the first company to offer an all cotton t-shirt approved by the Skin Cancer Foundation and are the only company to have their fabrics approved by NASA for superior UV blocking.
