Did you know that garments made from polyester and other synthetic fibers are a prime source of microplastic pollution? In addition, up to 85% of textiles go into landfills each year. That’s enough to fill the Sydney harbor (12 miles!) annually.
The brilliant thing about this brand is that all its products are made of sustainably-sourced organic cotton and other natural materials under working conditions that respect and advance human rights.
Cute data: The origin of the brand name takes us back in time when the founder’s niece wanted to write “T-shirt” and wrote “Tiesjurt“. She took it as a sign to give that touch of warmth that represents the brand.
Ok.. maybe the title gives us away on this one 😀. These amazing products for your skin-care are based on upcycled ingredients in natural formulations, also are cruelty-free, 100% vegan certified and plastic-free packaging.
And well… Yeah! The upcycled ingredient is coffee.
Rather than saying 500,000 tonnes of coffee grounds are sent to landfill in the UK each year, Upcircle says, “each of their face scrubs rescues the equivalent of four espresso shots from being discarded.”
⏭️ The Face Serum with upcycled coffee oil helps to brighten and nourish the skin. Furthermore, it’s formulated with hydrating rosehip and skin-supporting sea buckthorn oil.
⏭️ The Eye Cream brightens, refreshes, and renews, dramatically reducing the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. Also, it’s formulated with upcycled coffee grounds and anti-inflammatory maple bark extract, a by-product of the wood industry.
They make these sneakers with the finest vegan raw materials and can easily match the big brands in terms of style and quality products.
They’ve got two secret ingredients: cork-leather and recycled rubber to ensure sustainability and high comfort.
They harvest cork-leather from the bark of cork oak trees native to warm, moist regions like the Mediterranean. Cork oaks have a lifespan of up to 300 years and undergo a regenerative process in which their bark completely replaces itself every nine years. As a result of this, cork is a sustainable material.
FOR EVERY 10,000 TONES OF ECONYL® RAW MATERIAL WE AVOID THE USE OF 70.000 BARRELS OF CRUDE OIL
Besides, this material avoids 65,100 tonnes of CO2 eq. emissions.
In addition, the fabric complies with The Global Recycle Standard (GRS).
💙💫See you soon!
