Bottle Rockets by Bonobos
Made from reclaimed plastic beer bottles – the kind you toss at family bbq’s and baseball games. Each jean has a stamp that illustrates the number of beer bottles it diverted from a landfill.
HOW? The bottles are collected, sorted, and cleaned by Earthspun, a North Carolina textile company that shreds and melts them into liquid. After it’s extruded to long filaments, the material is woven with standard cotton fibers and spun into yarn.
