More than 1 million tons of textile waste are thrown away every year, 50% of which is reusable. Goodone clothing company, based in East London, are doing their part to see that one person trash is another’s treasure in a truly economical way. They make one-off products by deconstructing recycled and fair trade clothing and reconstructing them into a brand new item. Good One also offer their consultancy to brands and retailers wishing to re-work their waste whether it be in to new design, sourcing, production or sustainability through their specialist skills and expertise in the fashion industry.
And, on top of all that, they do their part for the community by working with councils, schools, colleges and universities, providing their knowledge to educate people about economic and environmentally friendly solutions for the clothing and fashion industry. And, currently they’re showcasing their line at ECO shop, a pop-up store ECO shop at 303 Westbourne Grove in London (go quick though – they’re only open till Christmas).
