Outdoor apparel brand The North Face is out to reduce plastic waste. The brand has collaborated with National Geographic on a collection made from upcycled plastic.
Titled "Bottle Source," the limited edition range includes men's and women's T-shirts, long sleeve T-shirts and hoodies, each made from recycled plastic found in national parks such as Yosemite, Great Smoky Mountains and Grand Teton. According to The North Face's website, the company pulled 384 thousand pounds of plastic bottles.
Items in the Bottle Source collection are printed with text reading "Protect Our Parks," "Our Land Our Future" or the words "Worth Protecting over an image of the globe. The collection ranges in price from 25 to 65 dollars and is currently available on The North Face's e-commerce site.
The North Face also shared that it is donating 1 dollar for every Bottle Source item it creates to the National Park Foundation.
