PLAYBACK! Wear your water bottles!

From CoCoPerez.com:

Helping the environment just got a lot easier!

Based in Brooklyn, Playback is an eco-friendly clothing company in it's truest form. Noting the importance of reusing and recycling, the clothier goes so far as to produce unisex tees and sweatshirts from recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles - in other words, plastic beer, water, and soda bottles.

Their five step process optimizes on discarded plastics and cotton textiles that would otherwise sit in a landfill and hurt our planet.

Available in Beer Bottle Brown, Soda Bottle Green, and Water Cooler Blue, their shirts are 65% recycled polyester from PET bottles, and 35% recycled cotton, and their yarn is ring spun to ensure you won't be able to tell you're wearing that water bottle you tossed at the gym last week.

Each shirt uses about 8.5 plastic bottles to make, and considering Americans toss 2 million plastic bottles every ten minutes, it's a great way to help Mother Earth.

And the best part is that, priced from $22-$44, they're more than affordable.

Playback also makes tees from recycled cotton in an array of colors and designs, but we think that the recycled PET bottles are just the most.

Pick up your recycled tee at Playback.com!
