We’re always excited to learn about people, companies and organizations working together to find new and innovative ways to use recycled plastics.
We recently learned of an exciting collaboration between Burton Snowboards and Mountain Dew, who have teamed up to create clothes – apparel and outerwear – from fabrics made out of recycled plastic bottles. You can read about it here: http://www.sacbee.com/2011/11/16/4059392/burton-snowboards-mountain-dew.html
Burton is starting with T-shirts and plans to move into outerwear next year. This innovative partnership is good for both business and the environment.
Currently this clothing is only available at certain Burton stores, but the retailer promises to expand its distribution soon, so next time you shop for athletic wear, keep an eye out for this and other products made with recycled plastics.
