Polo Earth outlines an important next step for the brand and its commitment to preserving the planet and its natural resources, with fabric that is comprised entirely of recycled plastic bottles. Alongside this, Ralph Lauren is working across its value chain to reduce its climate and water impacts and avoid waste. As part of that goal, the Company is striving to create packaging that is 100% recyclable, reusable, or sustainably sourced by 2025.

The Earth Polo range is available to shop online and in-store in Australia.
