Sportswear giant PUMA is pushing its sustainability credentials with a new range of products that are either recyclable or biodegradable. Called InCycle, the “closed-loop” collection includes footwear, apparel and accessories that, rather than being tossed in the garbage at the end of their life-cycle, can be returned under the company’s “Bring Me Back” program.
The biodegradable components of the InCycle line include materials that can be broken down by microorganisms into biological nutrients.
