Sportswear giant Puma has partnered with First Mile to launch a clothing collection made from recycled plastic bottles.

First Mile is a people-focused network that ‘strengthens micro-economies in Taiwan, Haiti, and Honduras, by collecting plastic bottles to create sustainable jobs and reduce environmental waste’. In 2018, it produced more than 300 tons of recycled yarn from waste. 

The new collaborative collection consists of trainers and ‘apparel featuring utility pockets and outdoor elements’ – all of which feature First Mile’s sustainable yarn. 

‘Pressing environmental problems’

“Plastic pollution is one of the most pressing environmental problems the world faces today,” said Adam Petrick, Global Director of Brand and Marketing for PUMA.

“That is why we are very excited to join First Mile and be a part of the solution while supporting low-income communities and transparency in supply chains.”

‘Responsible sourcing’

Director of Partnerships at First Mile Kelsey Halling added: “We are thrilled to welcome PUMA to join a group of bold, innovative brands leading the way in responsible sourcing.

“The PUMA x First Mile collaboration will positively impact lives by giving value to plastic waste.”

You can shop the collection, which is priced between £75-£95 ($96-$122, here
