…BECAUSE THERE IS NO PLANET B
In partnership with ECOALF.
ECOALF has collected more than 59 tones garbage since September 2015 and has recycled more than 30 of millions used plastic bottles transforming it into high-quality products. ECOALF is a modern fashion brand with a focus on sustainability which was founded by Javier Goyeneche in 2012. His idea to start his own brand was born from a deep frustration with the excessive use of the world´s natural resources and the huge amount of waste produced especially by the fashion industry. So he wanted to realize the innovative process of recycled clothing and creating the first generation of recycled products. All ECOALF products are produced with the same attention to quality, design, and function as the best non-recycled products. To ensure high quality and transparency, the ECOALF team manages the whole process from waste collection to developing recycled fabrics until manufacturing on its own.
ECOALF currently manufactures discarded fishing nets, used PET bottles, used tires, coffee, post-industrial cotton and wool into yarns and components for jackets, bags, and shoes.
UPCYCLING THE OCEANS
UPCYLING THE OCEANS is a project founded by ECOALF to help clean the oceans of debris through the great work and support of fishermen. The goal of this project is to transform the plastic found in the Mediterranean Sea into thread to produce fabric. 160 trawlers recover 4-6 kgs different kinds of trash like glass, plastic, aluminum every day in the Levante Coast. Ca. 60% of the recovery is plastic and 14% PET. This shows us how much plastic we use on our planet and a massive scale land in the oceans. According to the UN, ocean pollution causes the death of over 1 million seabirds and 10.000 aquatic mammals every year. It takes up to 400 years for 1 PET bottle to degrade. At this point, we like to THANK ECOALF for their huge support to remove waste from the oceans and to upcycle our ecosystem in such a fashionable way.
