Soma X Parley Water Bottle

You've seen their materials in many of adidas' latest styles, but now Parley for the Oceans has created an exclusive run of Soma bottles for Starbucks. The silicone sleeve has been swapped out with a neoprene sleeve that is upcycled from plastic waste taken from the ocean. To create each sleeve, each PET bottle is cleaned, sorted, and crushed into flakes that are turned into pellets that are melted using an extrusion process to turn the material into filaments. The filaments are then taken to a fabric mill where they are transformed into neoprene.
