Australian label Ena Pelly has announced that it has recycled over one million plastic bottles over the last 12 months, via its faux fur jackets. 

Each of Ena Pelly's faux fur jackets is made from approximately 60 600ml plastic bottles - which are collected, chipped, melted and spun into a soft yarn. 

Ena Pelly co-founder and creative director Dani Pelly said that the business is proud to have reached the milestone. 

"At Ena Pelly we are committed to ensuring our business has a positive impact on the planet and to manufacturing in an environmentally conscious manner. 

"We are extremely proud of the advancements that we made in early 2020 by working with our suppliers to promote innovation and social impact of manufacturing and packaging. 

"Twelve months down the track we have now recycled over one million plastic bottles to create our best-selling faux fur jackets into highly sustainable fashion pieces that we know our customers continue to love each season," she said. 

The news comes as the brand announces its autumn/winter 21 collection which features faux fur pieces for women and kids. 

The range contains 24 faux fur pieces for women, ranging in price from $299 to $369. 

Meanwhile, the children's faux fur range will launch on March 31.
