Fashion label Ralph Lauren is making larger and more apparent steps in the industry towards a more sustainable world -- the new Earth Polo marks its latest efforts. The brand set a goal for itself to remove at least 170 million plastic bottles from the oceans and landfills by the year 2025.
The shirt's design follows this footstep as it is entirely crafted from threads that have been sourced from recycled plastic bottles. The dyeing process also uses special zero-water technology. The Earth Polos are made from approximately 12 bottles per shirt and is made possible with the help of First Mile, which is an organization that is dedicated to positive social impacts and sustainability. The Earth Polos are available in the colors white, light blue, navy blue, and green.
