Historically, clothing was something that was used and kept for a very long time, but in today's society with cheap clothing readily available we tend to view our clothing as disposable and discard it at an increasingly fast pace. Millions and millions and millions of tonnes of clothing are consumed worldwide every year and the majority of this will end up in landfill instead of being reused or recycled. This wastes valuable resources and causes extreme harm to the environment. This is an unsustainable model and to change this it will require us to rethink the old model of use and make waste.
Project Solo creates garments that are classic, durable, timeless, and long lasting. You will still outgrow your clothes, wear through them or even decide it is time for something new. However, we can ensure that those worn clothes don't end up in landfills.
The Project Solo recycling program has been established to give our customers the opportunity to recycle any pre-owned Project Solo items in exchange for a recycling credit. The credit amount will vary by the type of item. We will transfer these items to a textile recycling facility where they will be broken down into fibers and re-used in many different industries. Recycling credits will not expire and can be redeemed only on our online store.
