The North Face has unveiled its new limited-edition Recover Tee, showcasing the label’s sustainability commitment by recycling plastic bottles. Titled “Bottle Source,” the three-tee capsule has been produced from more than 18,000kgs of plastic bottles that were collected from waste streams in the Alps.

The T-shirts themselves come in either long or short sleeve, and feature a new version of the The North Face’s heritage logo. For the capsule, the logo is decked out in blue, pink or green.

As well as aiming to reduce the plastic waste in the Alps, “Bottle Source” is also intended to raise awareness for the rubbish dumped in the mountains. With each item created, The North Face will also be donating 1 Euro to the Summit Foundation. This foundation supports the clean-up programs in the Alps and helps to protect wild places, ensuring that the mountains remain a great place to explore.

Take a look at the T-shirts in the gallery above, all three are available to buy now from The North Face web store and select physical locations.
