ECOALF

The Spanish company ECOALF was established in 2009. The idea came from a young man, Javier Goyeneche, who meant to reduce the excessive exploitation of the world’s natural resources and the enormous amount of waste produced by industrialized countries.

ECOALF started by creating partnerships with factories to develop fabrics, lining, straps, labels and cords using recycled materials. The firm invested also in R&D and started the production of clothing and accessories entirely made from recycled materials. Discarded fishnets, post-consumer plastic bottles, worn-out tires, post-industrial cotton, and even coffee grounds become outerwear, swimsuits, sneakers and accessories.

At present, the company has 11 active alliances throughout the world (Taiwan, Korea, Portugal, Mexico, Japan, Spain, etc.) that enable them to manufacture continually using recycled materials.

 The company targets a new generation of conscious consumers who are unwilling to reject their aesthetic values. ECOALF creates objects that make our lives more enjoyable without damaging our relationship with nature. The website “processes” section contains information and figures about the environmental effects of discarded fishnets, used tyres, plastic bottles and post-consumer coffee.

The online shop offers a wide range of top-quality products.

Web site: www.ecoalf.com

We like it because:

  • The team is made up of young and motivated people;
  • The website provides information that enhances the visitors' awareness about environmental problems and the need to recycle as much as possible;
  • The online shop is fashion-forward and eco-friendly.
