What if I told you that clothes can be made with recycled materials such as fishing nets and plastic bottles? The Spanish brand Ecoalf has achieved it, creating stylish garments of high quality and a marvellous style. And now you can buy these exclusive garments at your favourite men’s fashion store, Camarena Moda Home.
The textile industry is one of the most polluting on the planet. Millions of clothes are produced every year, 25% of which remain unsold. According to Javier Goyeneche, founder of Ecoalf, the model of designing, buying and throwing is no longer sustainable. This eco-friendly company emerged in 2009 because of his frustration over the excessive use of natural resources and the high amount of waste produced by industrialised countries. We have filled the oceans with plastics and we are killing flora and fauna. Javier’s goal was to manufacture the first generation of fashion products made with recycled materials of the same quality, all without neglecting design technical qualities. Javier Goyeneche was able to demonstrate that it is not necessary to continue abusing indiscriminately the natural resources of the planet to dress fashionably.
If you take a look at their catalogue you will discover a wonderful collection of garments and practical accessories with an exclusive design and a fantastic tailoring. “Made with recycled materials” has ceased to be synonymous with pieces of craft fairs. Thus, from Ecoalf they recycle products such as wool, cotton and coffee, and they also collect plastic bottles and fishing nets from the sea that their team of engineers converts into cutting-edge technology materials. All these recycled materials are used to make at least 80% of each garment. In this way, all their products are respectful of the environment, animals and people, respecting their sustainable social commitment. In addition, part of their benefits goes to cleaning the oceans.
Marine waste and trash converted into the eco-friendly clothing most sought after by celebrities
Ecoalf were a pioneer in focusing their business model on their corporate social responsibility. Today they manufacture all kinds of clothing, sneakers, backpacks and other accessories. Furthermore, each one of their products has a label that tells the story behind each article where they put the amount of recycled materials that have been used to manufacture the item.
One of their star products are their anoraks, a model chosen by Doña Sofía, the emeritus queen of Spain. But she is not the only celebrity who wears sustainable Ecoalf garments. Will Smith, Richard Gere, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elena Anaya, Alejandro Sanz or Pablo Alborán are some of those who have chosen these ecological fabrics to wear. In addition, Gwyneth Paltrow has also collaborated with Ecoalf to develop a collection of backpacks and vests created for Goop, the actress’s lifestyle website. Likewise, Ecoalf has also designed the equipment of Deportivo de La Coruña, the first football team to wear clothing created from waste extracted from the seabed.
