CHOOSE FABRICS MADE WITH RECYCLED FIBERS.
Swimsuits are ususally made with synthetic fabrics so they don’t stretch out when wet. In this case, a good option is to use fabrics made with recycled materials (from fishing nets or plastic water bottles for example). Lucky for you, there’s plenty to choose from with that criteria!; these are still stretchy and comfortable but generate much less non-biodegradable microfibers when washed. Pepita has already started making swimsuits with fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles and wants to reach 100% of its swimsuit production from sustainable fabrics in 2021!
REDUCE TEXTILE WASTE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
After cutting the pieces of fabric that will make up your swimsuits or pants, there is always some leftover fabric. Pepita uses leftover fabric to create products like scrunchies, and bags, reducing the amount of textile waste ending up in landfills.
Another way Pepita has found to reduce waste, is to reuse the paper that is left over from imprinting fabrics, as wrapping paper to protect clothes when shipping them to you. Let’s be always on the lookout for more ideas on how to minimize waste!
Kids will very likely outgrow their HoBe pants, swimsuits and Poncho Towels long before their colors start to fade. Finding second and third lives for your Pepita&Me clothes reduces the amount of fabric that ends up in landfills. Pepita encourages kids to pass on their garments to other kids once they have outgrown them. It will give everyone a happy feeling inside and contribute to a more sustainable world. We make our own prints and design in a way that transcends fashion trends… literally, the stories, concepts and characters you’ll find in Pepita&Me garments have been and will continue to be part of our collective imagination for decades to come.
Another way of saying this is: Unicorns will never fall out of fashion! Lions will forever inspire us to be brave!
