PUMA x FIRST MILE Second Collaboration Launched in Earth Day 2020

PUMA is now launching its second collaboration with First Mile using recycled fabrics. The campaign isn't just about turning plastic into a product, the collaboration aims to do more that is rooted in social impact with a deeper human connection for us to do better.


This second collaboration is working with network organizations using recycled fabrics. They source the plastic bottles from communities in Haiti, Honduras, and Taiwan to trade at a local plastic collection center. Once prepped and bundled, the bottles are transported to a recycling facility for processing. Recycling facilities then grind the bottles into plastic flakes which are then extruded into pellets. Caps and labels are removed to prevent contamination of any non-PET materials.
The pellets are turned into fine strands, then texturized into a soft fiber. Fibers are spun and further texturized to create a more substantial strand of yarn with optimal feel and flex. It is woven or knit to create fabrics and textures. From plastic waste into recycled polyester which PUMA uses for its footwear and apparel. If there's anyone asking what is the 12-piece collections material comprised of, PUMA shares that its at least 83% to even 100%. of First Mile's recycled yarn.
If you check out the collection, you can see that the theme is more on the earth tones with a touch of some vibrant accents. One of the highlights of the PUMA x First Mile collection is PUMA's signature LQD CELL sneaker.

Men's have the Hydra Camo silhouette which is in olive green, black and pink colorway, and also in Tapioca while with light blue accents. The women's also has a camo version which is in black with bright pink detailing and white with a chunky pink and green midsole.
