As The North Face increases the amount of recycled plastic in our polyester fabric, we provide a market solution for a growing problem - used water and soda bottles. For example, there are 51 plastic bottles in a Men’s Medium Denali jacket. We are also helping to reduce dependence on fossil fuels by reusing materials already in existence. Additionally, recycled polyester has a lower impact on air and water resources than virgin polyester.
Our goal is to bring recycled content into a broader range of materials, focusing on our highest volume products to make the biggest difference each season.
