The North Face’s “Seven Summits” Returns With Recycled Collection
Doin’ it for the planet.
The North Face has dropped the latest installment of its “Seven Summits” range, with a collection made out of recycled materials. The materials, mostly plastic, are sourced from one of the world’s most famous mountains – the Mount Everest.
Under a move for the brand to become more sustainable, the collection’s Bottle Source t-shirts are manufactured entirely from plastic found at the mountain’s base and printed with Everest graphics and info on the other six dominant summits.
The brand’s FUTURELIGHT technology – lightweight, waterproof and breathable – created out of recycled polyester is also incorporated into the tees and a variety of other pieces. Those include the Retro Mountain Light pant, the 7SE jacket 1994 and the Mountain Lite cap. The garments arrive in a deep black or striking pink, offering Velcro patches the wearer can modify to personal tastes, and we love a bit of customisation.
The North Face’s latest “Seven Summits” collection dropped on Feb 12 at thenorthface.com. Go grab a garm!
