With growing concerns related to environmental impact, an increasing number of big-name manufacturers have been making an effort to produce more sustainable offerings through novel materials and construction techniques. And one of the latest major players to get in on the environmentally-friendly action is PUMA, who recently joined forces with organization, First Mile to launch a new line of athletic footwear and apparel made from sustainably-sourced materials.

The 21-item collection is composed of recycled yarn made from plastic bottles that have been collected by individuals in Taiwan, Haiti, and Honduras — thereby creating jobs and boosting these small economies while simultaneously mitigating environmental waste. The plastic bottles are then sorted, cleaned, broken down, and then spun into a yarn that can be used to produce garments and footwear. Ranging from $26 up to $124, the collection consists of several training and running shoes, training shirts and jackets, a backpack and hat, and jogging pants with zip-off bottoms that become shorts. For more information or to check out the entire collection, you can visit PUMA’s website.

Purchase: $26+
