The garment Recycling Revolution
Pre-loved clothing is fashions new resource.
OCEAN LAUNDRY IS A SPACE FOR US ALL TO ADDRESS THE MAJOR THREATS FACING OUR PLANET CAUSED BY THE GLOBAL FASHION INDUSTRY. WE WANT TO CREATE A COMMUNITY, INSPIRE CHANGE AND TAKE ACTION BY CREATING CIRCULAR SOLUTIONS FOR FABRIC AND APPAREL PRODUCTION.
THIS IS THE SPACE FOR YOU TO FIND OUT ABOUT WHAT WE DO, OUR FUTURE PLANS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO BE PART OF THE COMMUNITY.
Every year, millions of tonnes of textiles are incinerated or carelessly dumped in landfill around the world. These clothes take hundreds of years to decompose, and while doing so release greenhouse gases, trapping heat in our atmosphere and warming up our planet. Toxic chemicals and dyes pollute our waters and soil; we are disrupting our Earth’s perfectly balanced ecosystems which are needed to sustain life.
We are already seeing the effects of the Climate Crisis. Deadly flash floods, rising sea levels, biodiversity loss and unprecedented heatwaves are happening around the world.
If we all make small changes, we can make a big difference.

-Creating circular solutions;
Our Ocean LaundryTM yarn and fabric is made from 100% post consumer textiles. As we save these garments from landfill, we also reduce the world’s reliance on virgin materials- creating new, guilt free garments!
Ocean Laundry strives to inspire, inform and innovate. We provide an informative platform to empower you to make positive changes. Reliable resources and transparency are central to our approach in creating a Recycling Revolution.
We are working to create regenerative solutions for current textile production, for a more circular, sustainable fashion industry. We want to encourage a thriving industry which simultaneously aims to conserve and restore the Earth.
We are diverting clothes from landfill, transforming post-consumer garments into a new recyclable fabric. We are reducing the world’s reliance on virgin materials, instead using the abundance of waste as a valuable resource to contribute to changing the fashion industry from a linear to a circular model.
