You can leave the travel mug at home if you’re wearing our Formentor Race Jacket. It’s made with S.Café yarn, which contains PET from recycled plastic bottles and – wait for it – recycled coffee grounds.
Why coffee grounds? Turns out they’re excellent at absorbing odor, which is pretty important if you’re working up a sweat … or shipwrecked on a deserted island without a bar of soap (it could happen).
Here’s Dean, our senior director of apparel, to tell us more:
S.Cafe is just one more way we’re thinking about the planet as we design our products. To learn more about the eco-conscious materials and technologies we use, check out the Timberland Technology Guide. To get your own Formentor Race Jacket (or one of our other non-caffeinated styles), shop our outerwear collection.
