*A statement on recycled polyester. The topic of recycled polyester is polarizing and complicated. We maintain our belief that disposing of existing plastic through the use of rPET polyester in fashion, and the replacement of virgin polyester with rPET polyester is a positive action towards sustainability. This is in line with Fashion Revolution, a global sustainable fashion non-profit."At Fashion Revolution, we believe that if we are to address the plastic crisis in our landfills and oceans, we need to take all the waste we've created, and engineer it into something worth wearing. As a first step, we should ask fashion brands to ban virgin polyester, and then ask them to innovate better solutions for synthetic materials." - Fashion Revolution, January 2020.
