The world has produced over eight billion metric tons of plastic since 1950, a number which is predicted to rise to a whopping 34 billion by 2050. By 2015, only 9% of the world’s plastic was recycled. To try and reverse the damage to our planet, The North Face has joined the likes of adidas and Parley on a goal to fight climate change and reduce plastic waste by taking its outdoor apparel expertise to a collaboration with National Geographic, creating a limited edition “Bottle Source” collection made from upcycled plastic.

Like the duo’s first joint effort, the collection consists of branded black and white hoodies, sweat shirts and tees featuring the the phrase “WASTE IS OVER” in bold lettering, reflective of the eco-friendly mission from the two collaborating companies. All the garments in the collection are crafted from single-use plastics retrieved from the plastic waste found across various public spaces and national parks in the US, including Yosemite, Great Smoky Mountains, and Grand Teton.

Aside from upcycling plastic waste, The North Face will also be donating $1 USD to the National Park Foundation for every Bottle Source product it makes as part of a contribution supporting sustainability projects and programs. For those interested in the collection, it’ll be available on The North Face’s website on June 19, with products retailing from $35 USD to $60 USD.

And for more things related to sustainability, Native Shoes just dropped a plant-based sneaker that’s 100% biodegradable.
