Plastic sits in landfills for hundreds of years before biodegrading, often ending up in animals’ homes and stomachs before finally breaking apart.

One of the best ways to keep plastic out of landfills and oceans is to use items that breathe new life into it. Here’s a list of five pieces of outdoor gear that are made from recycled plastic!

  1. Ocean Plastic Frames: Norton Point collects plastic from waterways in Haiti and turns it into stylish sunglasses. 
  2. Earth Bags: Hamilton Perkins offers sleek duffle bags made from recycled billboards and plastic bottles. 
  3. OutDry Extreme Eco Jacket: Columbia’s eco-friendly rain jacket line is the first made from 100 percent recycled polyester.
  4. Ultraboost Parley Shoes: ADIDAS’ collaboration with Parley for the Oceans produced a stylish and comfortable running shoe.
  5. Hookline Short Sleeve Shirt: Toad and Co offers classic plaid button up with an eco-friendly twist.

We'll take one of each!
