FOR EVERY PAIR OF LEGGINGS THERE IS ONE KILO OF PLASTIC THAT WILL NOT REACH BRAZILIAN WATERS
GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK
It is one of our main concerns to do what we can, in order to minimise our environmental footprint, whilst designing and producing active wear that offers the high quality standards, comfort and durability required by our athletic clientele. We believe that offering the best quality is an efficient way of reducing footprint. Our active wear is made to last and be loved for years. The excellence of our garments are the guarantee they won't be worn out, disposed and end up in the landfill after a few washes.
Still, we are aware that the fashion industry is responsible for around 5% of carbon emissions. And since in the world, only 14% of the amount of plastic produced globally is recycled, we came up with this initiative: You buy a pair of leggings and Gypsy Amazon through a reverse logistic process, finances the collection, sorting and recycling of 1 kilo of plastic, creating jobs and avoiding waste to end up in the ocean. Our packaging is carbon free, using only biodegradable materials.
As a very small start up operation, we are proud to say that GYPSY AMAZON in 2 years has financed the collection, sorting and introduction of 5 Tons of plastic into the recycling chain. Avoiding the emission of 3,15 Ton of CO2 equivalents. If you would like to know more about this action, please scan the QR code. Thank you for caring!
