The North Face and National Geographic have teamed up on an eco-friendly collaboration. The “Bottle Source” collection presents their commitment to recycling and reusing plastics firsthand — the range is a line of sweatshirts and T-shirts designed with plastic. According to an official press release, since 1950 over 8 billion tons of plastic has been produced, that number is estimated to increase to 34 billion metric tons by 2050.
The collection features branded black and white hoodies, sweatshirts and tees emblazoned with the phrase “WASTE IS OVER” in bold lettering. The collaboration is created from single-use plastics found in waste streams throughout popular public spaces and national parks in the United States, including Yosemite, Great Smoky Mountains and Grand Teton National Parks.
The North Face will be donating $1 USD to the National Park Foundation for every “Bottle Source” product it makes to support sustainability projects and programs. You can purchase pieces from the “Bottle Source” capsule on The North Face’s website. Check out the range in the gallery above.
