Conscious Chatter

Call us a teensy bit biased, but “Conscious Chatter” is one of the best podcasts ever to grace the virtual airwaves. The brainchild of former Ecouterre writer Kestrel Jenkins, who now challenges people to consider the ethics of their clothing at Awear World, “Conscious Chatter” offers an insider’s look at the global garment supply chain through interviews with some of the industry’s canniest minds.

postcast filthy rebenaSure, the idea of sustainable fashion is ridiculously idealistic, but that’s just who us Filthy gals are. If you’re in the market for a fresh podcast we recommend ‘Conscious Chatter’ 100%. Happy listening!  Source: Ecouterre

Designed in collaboration with Karun, an eyewear company based in Chile, all three styles in the “Ocean Collection” comprise 100 percent traceable and recycled nylon from nets collected via Net Positiva, a first-of-its-kind fishnet collection and recycling program developed and run by Bureo’s own team.

“For every pair of glasses purchased, Bureo will be able to further expand this community-based fishnet collection and recycling program, while generating funds for programs that empower coastal communities most affected by plastic pollution,” the company said.

But the collection’s unique composition has other benefits, too, according to the firm. Compared with virgin-plastic eyeglasses, Bureo’s recycled frames generate roughly 70 percent fewer greenhouse-gas emissions, thanks in part to a mechanical processing technique that uses no chemicals and minimal water to melt the nets into pellets.

“This greatly differs from a ‘chemical recycling process’ which not only creates a waste byproduct but also requires heavy chemicals and water to break down the nets and return them to a form of nylon which can be made into thread for soft goods like clothing, swimwear and shoes,” Bureo said.

Ocean Collection $139Priced at $139 apiece, the sunglasses are available for sale online at shop.bureo.co, as well as at Pilgrim Surf + Supply in Brooklyn, Sawyer Land & Sea Supply in Santa Cruz, Calif., and Patagonia stores worldwide.
