Green Fashion Monday: A Recycled-Fabric Hoodie
This durable, well-fitting hoodie ($55), by a new, Brooklyn-based eco-fashion company called Playback, was made using leftover cotton scraps from bigger brands like Quiksilver and Levi’s. The company also makes T-shirts ($22) out of old soda bottles and long-sleeve shirts from X-ray film. Already, big-name bands including Dave Matthews and U2 have signed on to use Playback’s recycled-fabric products for their fan merchandise. The company’s founder, textile engineer Adam Siskind, started the business after being inspired by watching Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth.
