You know the adage, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”? Well, luckily for us, Vollebak is taking that to heart. Their Garbage collection takes a look at how our refuse can be repurposed into wearable clothing. This is recycling with a decidedly fashionable and wearable lean.
Currently the collection has three offerings. Their Garbage off-white t-shirt (made from old clothes and plastic bottles); the Garbage sweater (from bulletproof vests and firefighter suits); and their purple Garbage t-shirt (made from waste streams headed to the dump). Each of these are a new – and thoughtful – way to see how waste plays a role in our lives now, and how it will in the future, too,
