Our 23 Favorite Products Made of Recycled and Upcycled Materials

Tread lightly on the planet with shoes made from repurposed plastic, and many other Earth-friendly picks.

Humans haven't been kind to the planet. Climate change is out of control, and microplastics are poisoning our oceans. But even when we try to tread lightly, we still need to wear shoes and clothes and occasionally drive gasoline-powered vehicles. So it's important that we all make eco-friendly choices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and slow the spread of plastic waste. Luckily, some companies have figured out how to use that waste to make new products.

Here, we've highlighted some of our favorite companies and products that are making these decisions a little easier. You can buy these items—from bags to portable chargers to yoga mats—knowing that you're doing your part.
