We create some of the Play leggings you know & love with recycled polyester from the First Mile, an initiative that supports micro-economies in underdeveloped communities by collecting plastic bottles that are then repurposed into yarns.
Love your world!
So far, our Play leggings made using First Mile recycled yarns have helped to save more than 400,000 pounds of plastic waste—the weight of 9 million plastic bottles—from oceans & landfills.
