About one in every 13 items in a U.S. landfill is a clothing item. London-based startup Vollebak is out to change that. The company is creating a t-shirt made from plant and algae materials. Should it end up in a landfill, it is biodegradable.
They aren’t alone in the field. H&M and Scottish fashion line Seaweed Girl also include more sustainable products. With the environmental backlash against fast fashion, it’s nice to see the industry making a change — or at least starting to.
