Welcome to our EcoLab
Through passionate and thoughtful collaborations, we want to create the clothing of the future...
"The sustainable revolution is the single biggest business opportunity in the history of the world. It has the scale of the industrial revolution and the speed of the digital revolution." Al Gore
We want to build clothing that is designed for the future, that is not only good for your body when worn but also helps to solve the climate crisis, not make it worse.
Here are our current and on-going projects we have collaborated on...
Ngaire Takano, a sourcing advisor focusing on traceability and circularity who works across the fashion, food, beauty and drink sectors for over 20 years, presently based in Belgium.
Ngaire`s focus is transparency, circular and next life implementations for fashion brands and traceability.
Ngaire sits within a UN committee on traceability for sustainable garment and footwear.
Ngaire will provide analysis and guidance in mapping the supply chain from seed to finished garment and life thereafter. The focus will be the traceability of each stage (Tier 1 to Tier 6) and also how transparent are the suppliers and partners collaborating with Inland Sea. A Lifecycle Analysis incorporating the environmental, social and ethics will be included. Building relevant documentation for use in engagement and education for consumers and also internally will be included in the work. This will also be used to show transparent knowledge and communication to eliminate any possibility of greenwashing.
