The music producer has partnered with Coca-Cola for the campaign, which encourages brands to use postconsumer waste (at least 25%) to create clothing and accessories. Think of it as Will.I.Am’s eco-friendly answer to RED products. “To do recycled goods isn’t something new under the sun, but they just get buried under all the other products companies sell,” Will said in an interview Wednesday. “This idea is about how you can have a brand and marketing around sustainability. Each product helps sustain because it’s part of a whole slew of other programs. It’s a family of sustainability.” Brands like Levi’s and New Era have already signed on in support of the campaign.

• I don’t think Tyra Banks will be pleased to hear this! Apparently America’s Next Top Model judge Rob Evans is wanted on felony assault charges. Back in March, the model and former boxer got into a scuffle so fierce, it landed his opponent in the hospital.

It’s sad to hear Rob’s in trouble, but we’re sure he’ll come out on top. (TMZ)
