PUMA x FIRST MILE isn’t just about turning plastic into product. This is a collection rooted in social impact and human connection—one that threads people together around a decision to do better.
 
1. Plastic Collection:
 
First Mile collectors source plastic bottles from communities in Haiti, Honduras, and Taiwan to trade at local plastic collection centers.
 
2. Collection Center:
 
Once prepped and bundled, the bottles are transported to a recycling facility for processing.
 
3. Recycling Facility:
 
Recycling facilities grind the bottles into plastic flakes which are then extruded into pellets. Caps and labels are removed to prevent contamination from any non-PET materials.
 
4. Fiber Making & Texturizing:
 
The pellets are turned into fine strands, then texturized into a soft fiber.
 
5. Yarn Spinning:
 
Fibers are spun and further texturized to create a more substantial strand of yarn with optimal feel and flex.
 
6. Fabric Manufacturing:
 
First Mile yarn is woven or knit to create fabrics and textures for products that truly empower from the first mile forward.
