Whilst the general public are aware of the impact that modern-day humanity has on the planet, the road to global change is frustratingly slow. The economy, in its current mode of being, is rather apprehensive to change and this means that industry and policy operate at a delayed pace.
Whilst no solution is simple, Ethilution believes that by blurring the boundary between waste and beauty, we can create sustainable products that stand for a different future: a solution-based one that works toward alleviating the pressure of a linear economy.
The idea that you buy something, use it and dispose of it is dated. Ethilution, by acting as an intermediary node between the disposal of something and landfill, believes that a range of products designed from discarded aluminium coffee pods – amongst other things – will bring new life to what is traditionally understood as waste.
This, in essence, is the commitment of the circular economy, which exists to challenge the preconceived idea that items that have had their intended usage are finished.
The Ethilution team is a group of highly skilled and experienced professionals dedicated to creating sustainable and socially responsible fashion accessories. Our team includes sustainable designers, project managers, researchers, technicians, engineers, and communication and education specialists. Together, we bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in sustainable material selection, ethical production practices, circular design, and circular economy principles.
We take a holistic approach to sustainability, considering the entire lifecycle of a product, from raw materials to disposal, to identify areas for improvement and make recommendations for more sustainable practices. We also offer education and communication services to ensure that our clients are educated on circular economy principles and sustainable practices, and we work with them to build a circular brand and create a circular culture internally.
Our goal is to create products that not only look good but also do good for people and the planet, and we are committed to promoting a circular economy and reducing waste through innovative and sustainable design solutions.
Join us in the journey to create a more sustainable future.
