clothing from recycled material  jungl  the netherlands | 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.

1 jacket, 2 sides

From her childhood she focused on people, animals and the environment. It was quickly clear that she wanted to set up her own company and wanted to 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 the 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. 'In comparison with polyester, water consumption is 86% lower, energy consumption 70% lower and CO2 emissions 75% lower. The jackets are produced under good conditions in Shanghai and transported to the Netherlands by freighter, which in this case is 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 for the shipment of the products.

Microplastics, the little suffering

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

'In order 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.

Peaces of microplastic

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 in many cases is easier to enter. Keep going and keep in mind that every little bit helps. " Her own plans for the future are already clear. '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 own fair trade factory, specializing in the recycling of materials. '

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