My observant and thoughtful mother gave me a really cool birthday gift this year: a lightweight, fleece-lined, weatherproof jogging jacket for my winter runs - something I actually didn't have. Knowing about my growing eco-friendly efforts, she managed to find one that was made from recycled plastic bottles. Twelve of them, to be exact.

Made by New Hampshire textiles, eco-mills, the jacket is part of a line called earth-tec. Their website is under construction so I haven't got a whole lot of information about the process but so far I am pretty impressed.
