Five summer fashion essentials that are made from recycled plastic

The UN estimates that each year eight million tonnes of plastic leaks into the ocean thanks to waste from the fishing industry and single-use plastics. These fashion-forward companies are putting ocean plastic and single-use plastics such as bottles to good use with their sustainable vegan fashion ranges.
