In this crazy covid world we are living in right now, it can be hard to STOP and appreciate the world/planet we live on! Planet "EARTH" 🌏
As parents, it can also have us wondering... What world are we leaving for our children and their children.....🤷♀
How can we make a difference? Can we?
Yes, of course you can! ✊ I bet you already are!
Daily we are being reminded to reuse, recycle and reduce. BUT have you ever thought beyond taking your own shopping bags?
Next time you put on a piece of clothing, think to yourself "Where does this come from?" or even better "What fibre is this made from?" Check the fabric tags! Does it say "recycled fabrics/fibre" ? ♻
Everything we use and buy is manufactured in some form from a raw material). What raw materials are used to make that fibre/yarn/material?
Most commonly fibres you will know are Natural (cotton, wool, silk, bamboo) or Synthetic (man made).
Naturally you want to lean towards Natural or fabrics that come from nature, thinking they are best.... BUT let this just sink in.... The more clothing we buy using " nature' the more we are TAKING from nature....
Don't we want to preserve our Earth?
Can I just for 5 minutes flip your thinking, let this sink in.... "How can we REUSE the waste in our oceans to create a regenerated fabric, therefore helping us to RECYCLE!
Waste!!!! we can use waste and manufacture this into a regenerated fabric....
Just let that sit.....
If you are still with me! CONGRATS!
I bet you will be thinking differently when you pick up that $10 Kmart swimsuit....
That's why we will only use the BEST swim fabric:
Ocean waste Regenerated by @econylbrand
Milled into recycled fabric from @carvicofabrics
Ethically manufactured into swimwear by US!
