Beyond Retro Leather Back Pack
This is our new Favourite bag by Beyond Retro. a recycled leather rucksack with leather appliqué planet and stars. totally on trend with the nineties look. geek chic with a ecological and fair trade conscience.
“beyond Retro began in 2002 as a single warehouse-turned-retail store in East London, stocked with an eclectic range of vintage sourced from around the globe.”
“Every year in the UK, every household throws away 35kg of clothing a year. That’s the same as 90 pairs of jeans. That’s a lot when you consider the population of the UK is over 64 million people.
The fashion industry is the second most polluting in the world, and with 95% of the clothing we throw away able to have a second life, we’re on a mission to do just that. If we waste less and recycle more, we can make a lasting impact on the world. Plus, with so many beautiful vintage and secondhand clothes, there’s plenty of choice for a more sustainable wardrobe.
The image we have, the piles of clothes bales, can we make it smaller? It comes up MASSIVE and its a little oppressive maybe?
Last year, alongside our parent company Bank and Vogue, we rehomed 90 million items. Its an amount we’re proud of, but that’s only 10% of the UK’s total textile waste last year. ”
