That’s why we created this marketplace: a place where our community can get together, make conscious purchases of products made with ECONYL®, and learn more about how to be truly sustainable. These garments can Live & Repeat, changing shape and function, and so we can help preserve our planet’s resources. From waste to garment, over and over again, in a virtuous and infinite loop.

Since it was invented in 1938, nylon has provided new solutions that have improved a wide range of aspects of human life.
But it’s plastic and as such, it's durable and contributes to polluting the Earth. So, how can we divert it from polluting the Earth? The answer is simple: with ECONYL®, because we’re writing a different story. A story that doesn’t end with waste but starts with it. It’s indeed 100% made from nylon waste by Aquafil, a global leader in the synthetic fibers industry and a pioneer in sustainability. Using a radical regeneration and purification process, we recycle nylon waste right back to its original purity. This way, ECONYL® is infinitely recyclable and can unleash endless possibilities for makers, creators, and consumers. Visit ECONYL® to find out more.
When people go to their closets for a monthly or annual clear-out the choice is usually: keep, donate, or throw away. But among these choices, we only really know what happens to the clothes if we choose option A, keep. When we donate our clothes or ‘toss’ them, the rest of the clothing lifespan remains a mystery. Where do our clothes go?
If you have been speaking about sustainability this year, it’s more than likely that the topic of ‘regeneration’ has cropped up in conversation.
Far from just another buzzword, it means taking an approach that restores something to its original state, rather than simply trying not to damage it. From regenerative agriculture, which sets out to put back lost nutrients into our soil, to regenerative travel, aiming to boost the wellbeing of the host country, the concept is spreading fast through a whole host of industries.
A healthier, more circular economy depends on each and every one of us.
In nature there are no straight lines but as humans we have conceived the idea of linear for the purposes of simplifying our understanding of the world. If we can learn anything from nature, it’s that she knows best and that the Earth is formed of many circles and closed loop systems – something we are now aiming to replicate through circular economies.
