BBC Earth and Teemill have joined forces to disrupt the fashion industry and propose a solution to one of the greatest environmental problems caused by fast fashion – landfill.
The #SustainableMe zero waste t-shirt presents an entirely new model for fashion by recovering and reusing discarded organic cotton garments mixed with 100% GOTS certified cotton, printed in the UK seconds after it has been ordered to create a high-quality t-shirt with a minimal environmental footprint. Best of all, it can be recycled over and over again and need never enter landfill.
Designed from the start to be returned once it has worn out, Teemill make new products from the material that they recover. To enable this, they have created a unique recovery system where a customer can scan their worn out product with a mobile phone and activate a freepost code plus receiving £5 off a new item, so recycling your old t-shirt is free and easy.

RECYCLED PLASTIC SHOPPER BAGS
BBC Earth and John Lewis have come together to offer a range of reusable bags with a new take.
Made with 500ml plastic bottles recycled from post-consumer waste, putting to use plastic bottles that would have otherwise been thrown into uncontrollable waste streams, these RPET reusable bags have a durable finish with a colourful design. The recycling process is certified by the Global Recycled Standard. Dynamic bags perfect for all shopping missions!
