Making every stitch count... Movers + Shakers
THE RE-PETE PROJECT
Scientists say that by 2050 there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish - eesh! Tackling plastic pollution head on, THE RE-PETE PROJECT creates anoraks made entirely out of single use plastic waste, and every piece is designed to be 100% recyclable. So at the end of each garment's long life, it can be broken down, rewoven and remade like new - never ending in landfill and actively preventing plastic from landing in our oceans. High five for circularity!
Home to the best sustainable and renewable basicwear, one game changing feature to Organic Basics that we're shouting about is Polygiene, a recycled silver salt treatment applied to their activewear range, designed to keep clothes fresher for longer. That's at least one less load of washing - imagine that! Polygiene works by stopping the growth of odor causing bacteria on the fabric, and when it's time to give your clothes a freshen up, Polygiene has no harmful effect on the environment when washing!
During the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic, 72% of fashion brand buyers refused to pay for raw materials that had already been ordered and paid for by the factories. Doing what they can to help those garment factories with huge volumes of unused fabrics, TOBEFRANK stepped in with their RUBBISH RANGE; a collection of apparel made using those abandoned fibres. Amazing stuff! Their founder Frankie Phillips sums TOBEFRANK up as "Commitment to do good with fashion as the tool".
