The North Face has become the latest clothing brand to think long and hard about how best to reduce plastic waste in the face of the ever-worsening climate crisis.
To get a better grip on how they can go about minimising their usage, they’ve teamed up with a publication that knows a thing or two about the environment: National Geographic.
Together they’ve been on a mission to collect as much plastic waste as possible from various national parks and public spaces across America, with the result being a clothing collection that upcycles said waste into proof that rethinking our approach to single-use plastics is a worthwhile and wearable endeavour.
Hypebeast notes that for every product in the Bottle Source range sold, The North Face will donate a dollar to the US National Park Foundation as part of its ongoing sustainability crusade.
The eco-friendly garments are on sale now.
