Bonus for winners: become an Upcycling designer with Olska

The winners can spend the whole day at the Ecoolska brand production and, together with designer Olska, create the next upcycling collection, which will also be sold at a charity auction in spring 2022.

“Recycle your Life” upcycling collection

The capsule collection was created by hand by designer Olska for charity. The collection was created from old second-hand clothes: from second hand stores, the Second Wind clothing recycling fund, and discount stores.

What is upcycling and how will it help you take care of the planet?

The fashion industry is responsible for 92 million tons of waste annually. To solve this problem, a new sustainable fashion paradigm has emerged–upcycling.

Upcycling means reimagining and reusing used items.

A creative approach is taken to upcycling – reworking (instead of throwing away) an item whilst preserving part of its original form. As a result, the item that has been upcycled gets a whole new life.

This is a new kind of contemporary art that combines history and creativity. It is a commitment to conscious consumption and waste reduction.

With our upcycling collection, we want to show how you can be fashionable without harming the environment.

0 meters of new fabric and 0 natural resources were used to make the items. All the raw materials – used clothes – had already been created, and we just transformed the design.

This is the 3R concept: Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

We put our heart and soul into the collection, accompanied by the melodious songs of Freddie Mercury during the three-day-three-night creative process.
The collection aims to draw public attention to the problem of the fashion industry and environmental pollution.

All clothing items are completely unique

The entire collection was created purely for charitable purposes under an annual campaign to help clean up the ocean from plastic and support social inclusion programs.

Our collection is vibrant, extravagant and daring, like a huge shimmering arrow pointing to a massive problem.

How the fashion industry
affects ocean pollution

20% of the total pollution in the oceans is from the fashion industry.

10% of all greenhouse gases are from the fashion industry.

35% of microplastics in the ocean are from synthetic fabrics

1 %
of clothes are recycled
99 %
are simply thrown away

The production and dyeing of fabrics lead to the release of pesticides and chemicals into the water, as well as a billion tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere every year.

Synthetic fibers (polyester, nylon, acrylic) are made from plastic. Fast fashion clothing contains more than 60% of this type of fiber.

Thousands of microplastics come loose from such items during washing and then enter the water supply.

138 000
microparticles of plastic are released per wash of polyester and cotton clothes
730 000
microparticles of plastic are released per wash of acrylic clothes

Every year, we produce 150 billion new garments.

This is accompanied by chemical emissions and the poisoning of soil, air and water.

We take the resources we need from nature and give back polluting waste.
