Athleisure gets ethical

Marrying together athleisure with sustainability, Evamoso is a clothing brand to put firmly on your radar. The eco-conscious company launched this year with a fourpiece collection, including two pairs of leggings, a vest and a long-sleeve top – the simplicity of these essentials is bound to streamline your gym kit. All four items are made from recycled polyamide (econyl), bamboo or organic cotton. Econyl is a 100 per cent regenerated nylon made from ocean waste and this fabric can be recycled, recreated and remoulded, making it a great sustainable material. Meanwhile, the bamboo used by Evamoso requires zero pesticides for it to grow and it biodegrades quicker than oil-based synthetics. “In creating Evamoso I am hoping and pushing for ecologically sustainable fashion brands to become a new norm”, says Jennifer Eva Thiel, founding director of the brand. “Evamoso is providing a stylish and comfortable option for people who care about the future of our planet.” evamoso.com

The end of commercial food waste?

Globally, a third of all food is wasted. However, thanks to a new innovative technology that is powered by artificial intelligence, the disposal of commercial food waste could be prevented. Winnow Vision, will be able to recognise different foods being thrown in the bin and calculate the financial and environmental cost of the discarded items to kitchens. Currently, Winnow develop cutting-edge digital tools to help chefs run more profitable, sustainable kitchens and this latest product is set to revolutionise food management and waste. Winnow Vision works by using a camera, a set of smart scales and the same type of machine learning technology found in autonomous vehicles. Businesses and chefs can then adjust their food purchasing decisions accordingly, reducing their spending and tackling overproduction. Food waste costs commercial kitchens between five and 15 per cent of all food purchased, with some kitchens wasting up to 20 per cent of what they buy – which is a figure that Winnow Vision hope to slash.

About Be Kind

Hello, When I was little, my parents had a new fridge-freezer delivered. It was a very exciting time because, after a lot of begging, I was allowed to keep the box and I had big plans for it. I became all-consumed with my project – rushing home from school to colour in a panel, pin up a picture or paint numbers on the door. I transformed this brown cardboard cuboid into my own little office, complete with seat, desk and window, and I remember feeling totally satisfied with the finished article. I’d taken something drab and boring and, with a lot of imagination, turned it into something I deemed wonderful. What has my funny little box office got to do with saving the world? Well, this issue we are looking into how with a bit of creativity and ingenuity, we can change things for the better. There are brilliant companies who are taking plastic bottles and making them into swimwear, people that are using their crafty skills to make items for those that really need them, such as blankets for refugees, and a whole bunch of talented social media stars who can help you upcycle the items you no longer love into things you really do. We also look at the incredible benefits of indulging your creative side and how, just like when you were a kid, you should regularly set your imagination free. If you need me, I’ll be decorating my office. Have a great month, Phillipa Editor
