World famous sportswear brand Puma announce a biodegradable and recyclable range

With companies all around the world trying to go green, renowned sportswear manufacturer Puma have taken a real leap by introducing and incredible range of Puma clothing that is in fact biodegradable, and are encouraging customers to recycle used items.

The range is called the 2013 InCycle collection and features 22 different items of Puma clothing, including footwear, t-shirts, jackets and bags. Instead of being made from traditionally used materials, this range of Puma clothing is made from biodegradable polymers, recycled polyester, and organically-produced cotton. This allows Puma to avoid using certain products that are harmful to the environment.

Recycle Your Old Puma Clothing

It's not just biodegradable new clothes that Puma are promoting. The company is also persuading people to start recycling their old Puma clothing, and from the start of next year, are going to begin introducing collection bins into their stores, where people can conveniently recycle used clothes. These can then be broken down, and eventually turned into new clothes again, massively reducing the waste that Puma produces.

Initially, these bins will only be in Puma’s own stores, but the former chairman of Puma, Jochen Zeitz indicated recently that larger sportswear stores that stock Puma clothing may also eventually use them.

A Sportswear Revolution

Puma’s announcement is the very first of its kind, and many people are expecting that other sportswear manufacturers might move towards environmentally responsible clothing in the near future. There are a lot of opportunities for sports manufacturers to go green, and it will be interesting to see how others react to the announcement of this special range of Puma clothing.
