Ecoalf was born from the idea to create a fashion brand that is truly sustainable. The concept arose from the frustration with the excessive use of the world’s natural resources and the amount of waste produced by industrialized countries.
Studies have shown that we are presently using 5 times more natural resources than the planet is able to auto-generate. Additionally, 200,000 million plastic bottles are not collected every year, 650,000 tons of fishing nets being left at the bottoms of our oceans, and 1 million birds and 100,000 marine mammals and turtles are being killed by trash annually. Recycling could be a solution!
Most fabrics only contained a very small percentage of recycled material (15-20%), however through integrating breakthrough technology Ecoalf has created clothing and accessories made entirely from recycled materials…without actually looking like it. Discarded fishing nets, post consumer plastic bottles, worn-out tires, post-industrial cotton, and even used coffee grinds become outerwear, swimsuits, sneakers and accessories that the modern consumer can feel good about wearing while making a tangible difference on our environment.
