Focusing more on sustainability, Starbucks Korea will drop a capsule collection made from recycled plastic.

Launched in March, the partnership between Starbucks and eco-friendly brand NAU aims to recycle more plastic and to promote reusable cups. All the material collected will be converted into new merchandise.

Spanning from shoulder bags, cushions, mini pouches, and a cup holder, the environmentally-friendly collection is dressed in all-gray cotton with plastic waste filling. One standout item is a pair of mittens offered in cream or signature Starbucks green – which doubles as a paper sleeve for hot drinks. The mittens sport co-branding along with a “Recycle” checkmark.

The mittens along with the other items are available now in all Starbucks locations in Korea.
