Europe is responsible for over 16 million tonnes of textile waste, being responsible for recycling only a negligible amount of the amount. Unused clothing therefore ends up as waste, even though it has a tremendous recycling potential. Sobi.eco is a brand that recycles thrown out textile and plastic, breathing a new life into what has been once used and thrown away. Cases for electronics and documents, or bags and other useful accessories are manufactured in sheltered workshops that provide work for people with disabilities and handicaps in regions of Slovakia that suffer from high unemployment rate. The brand’s goal is also to increase people’s awareness about responsible manufacturing and consumption, and their influence on our resource-scarce planet.
