Did you know North Americans send 9.5 million tonnes of clothing to landfills every year? But here’s the good news: 100 per cent of it can be recycled.
Local sustainable clothing brand Anián wants to be part of the solution to this problem. Its Modern Melton shirts are made with recycled natural fibres to combat textile waste from the clothing industry.
“In 2019 alone, we’ve taken over 60,000 pounds of post-consumer textile waste and created our Modern Melton,” says Anián founder Paul Long. “It’s a shirt that aims to have your back for years to come.”
