Burton Snowboards & Mountain Dew Announce New Sustainability Partnership and Launch T-Shirts Made from Recycled Bottles

 

   I discovered this article after we had watched the Dragon’s Den episode dealing with the lifestyle clothing company 10Trees. With the negativity of each seminar, it was uplifting to see that it is possible to make a profit and be a viable business—while still upholding your own values when it comes to sustainability.

 

  Snowboarding and outdoor apparel manufacturer Burton has teamed up with Mountain Dew to launch a new line of t-shirts. Made from 50% recycled bottle caps and 50% organic cotton. Available in 3 different styles, they are part of a new line of shirts from Burton’s Green Mountain project (their eco clothing line). These shirts were only the beginning for Burton and Mountain Dew partnering together. An outerwear line was also created and distributed to Burton retailers across the country.

 

 As a brand that is widely recognized and worn by a younger generation, I think this is a great measure undertaken by Burton. While you wouldn’t know by looking at the shirts that they were made with recycled bottle caps, the illustrations are definitely pretty creative. One shirt depicts a funky machine—spitting out pieces to make up the shirt from bottles going in.
