Global sports brand PUMA and First Mile have co-created a sportswear collection made from recycled plastic, rooted in social impact and human connection.
Crafted to help you perform your best during any workout, the PUMA x FIRST MILE collection consists of shoes and apparel made from recycled yarn that is manufactured from plastic bottles collected in the First Mile network.
The First Mile is a people-focused network that strengthens micro-economies in Taiwan, Honduras, and Haiti by collecting plastic bottles to create sustainable jobs and reduce pollution. The bottles are then sorted, cleaned, shredded, and turned into yarn, which is later used to create products with purpose that truly empower from the first mile forward.
The first PUMA x FIRST MILE training collection will be available starting 21st February , 2020, in PUMA Stores, and selected retailers worldwide.
