A little bit of love goes a long way for the planet and for your budget. We’re excited to announce our new REloved range, 100% upcycled and handmade in Brisbane by our incredible, creative team, writes World’s Biggest Garage Sale.
Our REloved products have been crafted from materials and items that otherwise would have been destined for landfill. Through REthinking, REdesigning and REmaking, they have a second life and will get more love in the future.
An estimate of 92 million tonnes of textiles are wasted each year. We are REthinking textile waste by creating beautiful, functional products with sturdy canvas and resource recovered fabrics that otherwise could have ended up in landfill.
As an example, the production of denim is not only resource-intensive, but the dyeing process also produces chemical waste that destroys natural resources (like lakes and rivers – often the heart of communities in developing nations) and endangers the health of the people manufacturing them.
It is estimated 1.7 million Australians are buying at least one pair of jeans in any four-week period. Yet, Aussies only wear an estimated 40% of their wardrobe, meaning 60% of clothing in Australia is ready to be donated.
Do not let denim go to waste! We have created upcycled denim bags and cushions to give this sturdy material a new life cycle.
Wood products take an average of thirteen years to decompose in landfill; our upcycled pallet furniture and accessories saves trees, energy and divert useable materials from landfill.
REpurposed and REmade, these beautiful items are all handcrafted and designed at our Circular Economy Precinct.
