The idea for Eco Style came when Angela, the founder, was on holiday in Greece visiting family. A walk along the beach with her young daughter one morning showed her the amount of plastic that had been washed up and she began to think about what these wasted materials could become.
The technology to create yarn from recycled plastic was still in its infancy and was much more likely to be used to make utility products, such as lunch bags and rucksacks. To make scarves, the yarn would need to be very soft and feel luxurious to wear. The scarves also had to look beautiful, exclusively designed in London she wanted the range to have a wide appeal so everyone could get involved in the recycle, reuse, reduce culture she feels so passionately about. Angela set to work, finding a factory willing to invest in the technology and her vision, which took over two years and was complicated by COVID.
Each one of these Eco scarves uses seven plastic bottles in its production, reducing landfill and ensuring they do not end up in the ocean. Endorsed by the organisation REPREVE, which certifies products made from recycled plastic. Eco Style feel this is the beginning, come join the revolution!
