The North Face's "Bottle Source" Collection Reminds Us to Reduce Plastic Waste & Pollution

The entire range was made with 18,000kg of plastic bottles collected from the Alps.

Known for its commitment to combatting environmental issues through initiatives like its upcycled “Remade” collection, The North Face has now revealed another powerful range highlighting the amount of plastic waste that is polluting the Earth. The “Bottle Source” collection, arriving in the form of tees, was produced from 18,000kg of single-use bottles collected from the Alps.

Aiming to raise awareness of the amount of waste being dumped in nature, the range features a limited-edition Recover Tee, which is available in both short and long-sleeved iterations. The unisex piece features the outdoor label’s logo at the chest in blue, pink and green. With each T-shirt created, The North Face has pledged to donate €1 EUR to the Summit Foundation, an organization that supports clean-up programs in the Alps.

You can head over to The North Face’s online store or select offline locations to purchase the Recover Tees for £30 GBP (approximately $38 USD) to £40 GBP (approximately $50 USD).

For more sustainable fashion, peep Veja’s latest eco-friendly sneaker dubbed Urca.
