Why to buy: ACE is a circular fashion brand turning ocean and landfill waste into sustainable and ultra functional bags to carry all day for gym, work and travel. Designed in Madrid, with 100% recycled ECONYL® yarn, weaved in Italy and crafted in Portugal, each piece is lightweight, comfortable, spacious and machine washable. The label was founded a year ago by Anna and Sandra with the mission to make sustainability more accessible and cool, offer timeless statement pieces to eco-conscious women and create a brand that inspires Active, Chic & Eco lifestyles. Circularity is ACE's core value since each bag reduces waste, minimises the use of new resources and comes with the promise of recycling when it reaches its end-of-life. They currently offer 4 models: the Iconic Tote Bag (very spacious), the Urban Tote Bag (in a smaller version), the Sporty Chic Backpack and an Ultra Spacious Cosmetic Bag.
What we love: In addition to the mix of pure functional Swedish design and edgy Belgian fashion, each ACE bag represents 0,5 kg of rescued waste. ACE uses ECONYL ®, an Italian premium quality regenerated yarn - also used by luxury brands such as Prada, Gucci, Burberry and Stella Mc Cartney - as the main material for its collection. This innovative sustainable fiber is mainly recycled from abandoned fishing nets, the biggest polluter of our oceans and responsible for the deaths of too many entangled turtles, whales and dolphins. Those discarded nets are rescued by volunteer divers at Healthy Seas, an initiative who cleans the oceans from this marine pollution and whom ACE supports by giving 1% of their sales (through the 1% for the Planet program). Moreover, ECONYL® yarn is infinitely recyclable which allows them to offer a Give Back program: ACE recycles their end-of-life bags to close the loop and fulfill their promise of circularity!

Why to buy: Koup t-shirts are ultra-lightweight (weighing 85 grams for men’s short-sleeved medium) which is super packable for your adventure. Unlike other performance technologies on the market that use short-lasting chemicals and are harmful to the environment and the body, the cinnamon technology is permanent, natural and safe for both the body and the environment. Koup believes in reducing unnecessary single-use packaging, so the t-shirts come in its own pouch bag made with the scrap fabric as the t-shirt and recycled materials are used in the case where single-use packaging is necessary such as for posting.
What we love: Apart from using cinnamon for its natural anti-microbial and odour control performance, Koup t-shirts are naturally sweat-wicking, quick-dry and temperature regulating (without chemical additives). It is versatile from an at-home workout t-shirt during the current Covid pandemic to a multi-day getaway camping trip in the wilderness, keeping you comfortable under any routine. Each Koup shirt saves on average 8 plastic bottles from becoming landfill or ocean waste and is 100% recyclable. More importantly, it is sustainably sourced and ethically made where it uses Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified recycled polyester material, Bluesign® certified (eco-friendly) dyeing and textile finish processing, REACH® verified non-toxic material and WRAP approved ethical garment production.
