#2. REVIVE


Hi !

Our second newsletter is here to ignite your inspiration.

We continue to select and share sustainability narratives that have a creative spark, drawing inspiration from nature itself and the people who take care of it.

Just as beauty manifests in various forms, so do sustainable initiatives.


We thought it could inspire you too.




 



DESIGN

Preventing coastal erosion with oyster shells.

Design Reef Lab designed and manufactured modules from an eco-blend concrete mixture and recycled shell aggregate to reduce the force of waves and prevent erosion along Greater Geelong's beach in Australia.

Also providing optimized habitat for marine life, it has turned into a snorkeling destination.

Six months after the installation, the results were already conclusive.

BEAUTY

Resurrecting extinct florals with Future Society.

Seeking to explore nature through limitless ways, new brand Future Society reached out to the Harvard Herbarium in search of presumed-extinct plant specimens.


Using biotechnology and DNA sequencing, they translated them into scents, working with world-class perfumers to reconstruct the scents that these flowers might have had.


A reclaiming of possibility, and a reminder that we can still choose to create the future we desire.






 

LABEL

Ensuring sustainable wool.


ZQ is the world’s leading standard of ethical wool, where growers need to meet the strictest standards of animal welfare, environmental sustainability, fibre quality, traceability, and social responsibility.

With animal welfare as a forefront concern, ZQ farms also create environmental plans to manage the impact growing wool has on the land and local ecosystems and the overall holistic health of local communities.


While many other growers do not know where their wool ends up, ZQ growers are connected to the brands that purchase their wool and customers buying ZQ wool products have the ability to trace the origins of their wool back to the grower.


More than complete !





 


FASHION

Fashion Giant taking a stand on recycled textiles.

Zara-owner Inditex, the world's largest clothing retailer, has agreed to buy a substantial portion of recycled polyester textile from U.S. start-up Ambercycle over the next three years.

To kickstart this initiative and reach the 25% goal of "next-generation » fibers materials by 2030, Zara Athleticz launched their first capsule collection containing up to 50% cycora.


An investment underscoring the significance of collaboration among diverse stakeholders in driving the much-needed sustainability revolution within the fashion industry.

It is even more significant considering how such actions from influential industry leaders and major brands can spark inspiration and motivate other companies to join their efforts.





 


NUMBERS
