'Operation Warm' Announces Coats For Kids Made From Recycled Plastic

By Brian Spaen

Operation Warm is supplying a sustainable coat for children in need called “The Green Guardian.” The nonprofit will be creating 15,000 coats made from recycled plastic bottles across the North America by the fall. It was announced on Earth Day, which had a focus on ending plastic pollution this year.

Each of Operation Warm’s Green Guardian coats are made from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and makes up the lining, fleece, and the shell. Each coat will stop an average of 32 plastic bottles from reaching our oceans and landfills, and that’s close to 500,000 plastic bottles should the nonprofit hit their goal by autumn.
