Fashion’s recycled water-bottle sneakers and mushroom-leather belts aren’t shrinking the industry’s environmental footprint.
Following last year’s launch of its RE range, which is “designed for recycling”, the company has since expanded the line-up to include both hot- and cold-sealable coatings for paper. Those products are certified as paper-recycling compatible. Loctite Liofol HS 2809-22 RE is a coating covering a large variety of applications – from hygiene products and tea bags to industrial hardware pouches and chocolate overwraps. Loctite Liofol CS 22-422 RE also covers applications such as collection cards, cereal bars, biscuit packaging, frozen foods and ice-cream.
Not all founders are cut from the same cloth. Federico Sainz de Robles was working in a textile laboratory when he wondered why clothing brands hadn’t evolved with the times. He decided that if nobody else was making attractive, practical, and sustainable clothing, then he would. So he founded Sepiia, a Spanish clothing startup that operates at the intersection of fashion, technology, and ecology. Instead of creating cheap resource-heavy fast-fashion items, Sepiia focuses on high-quality, durable items.
