After some further investigation it turns out that Vans have also experimented with more 'sustainable' materials such as recycled PET and hemp.
I would like to see all shops offering services to take back, repair, reuse or recycle the products they sell in the first place.

This week I visited the White City community centre to run an Upcycle Fashion workshop with a youth group. With an introduction about upcycling followed by a sewing workshop, time was rather tight as we only had an hour. However, the group began quickly and really impressed me with their neat and straight stitching! The workshop was part of a series called White City/Green Planet at the community centre. This series is organised by Our Common Place, an initiative run by Waste Watch to encourage communities to work together to improve social and environmental wellbeing.
