Recycled Fashions of 2015

As we end off the first week of 2016, I thought it would be cool to reflect on some eye-opening and imaginative recycled fashion ideas created last year.

Schoolbags

These school bags designed by Repurpose are made from 100% recycled plastic.  The bags feature a rechargeable solar panel that charges during the day and turns into a light when the sun goes down, so children can continue to study.

 

Adidas

Adidas teamed up with Parley for the Oceans to create these awesome sneakers made entirely of ocean garbage – reclaimed ocean waste and illegal deep-sea gillnets, to be specific. Adidas and Parley worked in close collaboration with the Sea Shepherd as well.

This is one image of a series of unforgettable photographs of Senegal’s widespread environmental crisis – photographed by Fabrice Monteiro and designed by Jah Gal.

 

Sheltersuits

Dutch designers, Bas Timmer and Alexander de Groot, and a team of volunteers (mostly Syrian refugees) run the foundation and design, produce, and distribute Sheltersuits for the homeless. It is a wind- and water resistant jacket and sleeping bag. The suits are made out of abandoned tents from music festivals.
