Recycled Material: Clothing From The JUNGL

recycled material  clothing from the jungl | Breaking News

There are about 23 plastic bottles in the jackets, and they can be worn on two sides. We spoke with initiator Natascha (23) about her sustainable business.

From her childhood, she focused on people, animals and the environment. It was quickly apparent that she wanted to set up her own company and work with sustainable products. 'I have gone into the fashion industry because here, in my opinion, a lot goes wrong. It is polluting, working conditions are often not good, and animals are being treated badly. ' She decided to focus on plastic as part of the problem and solution. In Waste2Wear, she found a reliable and transparent producer, specialized in the processing of plastic waste to clothing. Fashion brand JUNGL was born, and Natascha designed a jacket that is wearable on two sides. 'That means that only one jacket needs to be produced and the consumer can wear two.'

Plastic Bottles

In jackets are, on average, 23 plastic bottles of 0.5 liters processed. These are used plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in nature or the incinerator. By using collected plastic bottles, no new raw materials are used. 'Compared with polyester, water consumption is 86% lower, energy consumption 70% lower, and CO2 emissions 75% lower. The jackets are produced under fair conditions in Shanghai and transported to the Netherlands by a freighter, the most sustainable option. ' JUNGL also takes the environment into account as far as possible for other matters. The shipping boxes, flyers, and business cards are made from recycled paper, and plastic is not used to ship the products.

Microplastics, The Little Suffering

Like polyester clothing from new raw materials, the jackets give microplastics during washing. 'Waste2Wear', however, ensures that the yarn's quality is as good as possible so that they wear less quickly. As a result, fewer microplastics release during washing.

'To minimize the pollution of microplastics, Natascha advises its customers to wash the jacket as little as possible. And if you wash it as cold as possible and without using the dryer. 'This does not help to reduce micro-plastics, but it is a lot more sustainable.' Ultimately, the young entrepreneur hopes that a solution will be found for the small harmful particles. That solution may already be on the way because these Berlin entrepreneurs have developed a laundry bag that captures microplastics.

Do Not Be Tempted

Natascha's tip for other starting entrepreneurs is very clear. 'Stick to your sustainable position and do not be' tempted 'by the polluting market, which is easier to enter in many cases. Keep going, and keep in mind that every little bit helps. " Her own plans for the future are already apparent. 'I would like to expand the collection with what kind of product I do not know yet, but in any case, made of sustainable or recycled material. ' Her mission has just begun: making people aware of the need to reduce plastic waste. 'I want to offer consumers an alternative to polluting clothing. And eventually, I open my fair trade factory, specializing in the recycling of materials. '

The jackets cost € 119, - and are for sale in the JUNGL webshop.
