Recycled Denim Collection by Scotch & Soda

Recycled Denim Collection by Scotch & Soda

I am more and more getting aware of all the waste we produce by ourselves, thanks to overconsumption, and trying to contribute myself into a more sustainable lifestyle.
That’s why I really like this RCLD Denim Knit work programme of Scotch & Soda‘s denim label Amsterdams Blauw.

Amsterdams Blauw designed a couple of “basic” knits that are perfect in its imperfection. The items are all made out of the bottom part of a jeans (the legs), this is easy to use because it doesn’t contain zippers, pockets or loops. After cutting the denim in little pieces they comb the fabric it into a fluffy substance. Eventually they separate all the different colors out of the substance and then you start at the beginning of a normal process, where you only have raw cotton.
This is the reason why this collection is almost 20% more expensive than a normal collection, but at the end you got more value for you money because you contribute into a more sustainable supply chain in the fashion industry.
All the products are not bleached or dyed what gives them all a cool and pure look and of course it’s better for the environment đŸ˜‰

This project is a little step in the right direction to a more sustainable fashion industry, but I’m really happy that the bigger fashion retailers are putting thoughts into this which will inspire more people to think more about waste!

Recycle Yourself

Recycle Yourself

We live in a society where everything is moving really fast. Every minute we see something new and all the decisions you have to make at one day really stresses me out sometimes. With all that noise in my head it is pretty difficult to think about the things that really matter. Like.. your own health or family or the things you really want to do because you enjoy them.

Sometimes I dream of a button inside my head which I can switch on and of. For instance a button for school, one for when I’m at work and one for when I’m at home so I can really have a time out from thinking about my school work and enjoy the company of others around me and really can listen to them. That would be nice right?

It’s a pity it doesn’t exist, that’s why I chose to post this particular picture so I can help myself to remember that I have to “Recycle Myself” sometimes. After a long day I’ll take my recycle moment and think about the things I liked and learnt that day so I can clean my head and start with some fresh air with a new chapter.
