Did you know that all of our accessories are completely Zero Waste? But, what does Zero Waste mean? Zero Waste, as defined by the Zero Waste International Alliance (ZWIA) means: "𝑻𝒉𝒆 π’„π’π’π’”π’†π’“π’—π’‚π’•π’Šπ’π’ 𝒐𝒇 𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒄𝒆𝒔 π’ƒπ’š π’Žπ’†π’‚π’π’” 𝒐𝒇 π’“π’†π’”π’‘π’π’π’”π’Šπ’ƒπ’π’† π’‘π’“π’π’…π’–π’„π’•π’Šπ’π’, π’„π’π’π’”π’–π’Žπ’‘π’•π’Šπ’π’, 𝒓𝒆𝒖𝒔𝒆, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 π’“π’†π’„π’π’—π’†π’“π’š 𝒐𝒇 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒅𝒖𝒄𝒕𝒔, π’‘π’‚π’„π’Œπ’‚π’ˆπ’Šπ’π’ˆ, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 π’Žπ’‚π’•π’†π’“π’Šπ’‚π’π’” π’˜π’Šπ’•π’‰π’π’–π’• π’ƒπ’–π’“π’π’Šπ’π’ˆ 𝒂𝒏𝒅 π’˜π’Šπ’•π’‰ 𝒏𝒐 π’…π’Šπ’”π’„π’‰π’‚π’“π’ˆπ’†π’” 𝒕𝒐 𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒅, π’˜π’‚π’•π’†π’“, 𝒐𝒓 π’‚π’Šπ’“ 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 π’†π’π’—π’Šπ’“π’π’π’Žπ’†π’π’• 𝒐𝒓 π’‰π’–π’Žπ’‚π’ 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒉."In the case of our products, it means the recovery and up-cycling of every inch of the fabric we use in our apparel collection. It can also mean the re-use of our dye vats, conserving water and recovering dye-stuff by designing around the color outcomes achieved with secondary and tertiary dips in the same formula (where color, shade and tone will be different). Some of those vats are created through recovery of materials that are the natural byproducts of other industries (saw dust, food waste and more) where we pay to collect these goods, diverting them from the landfill, and then formulate dyes with them to tint our collection. In this way, some of our products are Zero Waste three times over - having been made with recovered fabric, re-used natural dye vats, and recovered natural dye materials.
