By 2025, our goal is to have a collection made 100% from recycled and/or man-made materials in order to reduce reliance on the earth’s natural resources. Our latest jacket collection is one step closer to achieving that goal.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last year, it is a pretty well-known fact that there is too much plastic on this planet. For example: there are 51 TRILLION pieces of plastic in the ocean right now and experts say that by 2050, 99% of seabirds will have plastic in their stomachs.
Plastic is used worldwide in countless industries for countless things, and it most definitely serves a purpose. It is very strong, it is water, chemical and thermal resistant and it can last a long time – too long in fact since it takes about 450 years for a plastic bottle to self-decompose.
These qualities are what make plastic a material we like to work with, recycled plastic that is. This season, we present a full jacket collection for both men and women made from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET), including the shell, lining and filling.
