Game, set, match indeed! Just in time for the 2022 U.S. Open tennis tourney comes the limited-edition capsule from San Francisco–based shoe brand Rothy's and Evian water. The line—featuring a range of tennis-inspired goods including footwear for men and women, gear and accessories—was made with 72,000(ish) repurposed Evian bottles collected from last year's event in NY. Not surprising, given both brands share a mission to reduce plastic waste.
So now on to the good stuff…the stuff. The pieces are made from Evian bottles blended with other recycled plastic bottles, which are turned into soft, washable thread that Rothy's used to knit each item into shape. We're loving the courtside meets circular production thing, and we want all the pieces in the collection; our favorites include the slip-ons, visor and duffel bag. Get 'em while they're hot, folks, as they're selling out fast. P.S. Go Serena!

We can really get behind these ReMakes—and so can you. Novato-based eyewear brand Zenni recently debuted its new sustainable collection, made with 100 percent certified post-consumer plastic. It stars eight lightweight frames, including six adult styles and two kids styles. Not only are they stylin', they help the environment. Yep, every pair purchased supports the Wyland Foundation, a nonprofit whose mission is to promote, protect and preserve the planet's oceans and marine life.
Keeping with the theme, the various color options (neutral earth tones to blue gradients) are H20 inspired. As are the names of the glasses themselves, i.e. Baltic, Bering and Caspian. The collection is available with the full range of optical, sunglass and blue-light lenses. Prices start at $40 for adults and $36 for kids.
