Plastic Bottle-Recycled Shirts

Señor Seagull Offers Shirts Made From Plastic Bottles

— August 28, 2017 — Eco
The Señor Seagull brand offers classic men's t-shirts that are made from recycled materials which would otherwise be sitting in landfills.

The brand's mission is to "produce sustainable clothing that transcends fashion and trends" with designs that are inspired by nature, but classic enough to be worn on a daily basis. The goal of Señor Seagull was to tackle plastic pollution, which it is doing through using plastic bottles blended with organic cotton off cuts to create the shirts' material. Not only is the material the brand sources sustainable, the production process through which the clothes are made is carbon neutral, and "powered by wind and solar energy."

If the brand reaches its fundraising goal on Kickstarter, it will be able to repurpose at least 560 plastic bottles.

1. Sustainable Fashion - The trend of using recycled materials in clothing production presents an opportunity for disruptive innovation in the sustainable fashion industry.
2. Circular Economy - The growing interest in repurposing and recycling plastic bottles into clothing materials highlights the potential for disruptive innovation in the circular economy sector.
3. Renewable Energy - The use of wind and solar energy to power the production process of clothing made from recycled plastic bottles showcases the disruptive innovation opportunities in the renewable energy industry.

3. Renewable Energy - The renewable energy industry can capitalize on disruptive innovation by providing eco-friendly energy solutions to power the production processes of sustainable clothing made from recycled materials.
