Would you ever wear clothes made of algae?
Closed

Did you know that Algae is being used in different industries? Algae is being used in food, pharmaceuticals, and biofuel industries because Algae is a sustainable material and now could be in the Fashion industry. Algaeing, a Israeli startup that is creating a biodegradable, non toxic and low energy material clothing line using Algae.

If you’re curious to why they’re using Algae, it’s because more than half of our clothing contain synthetic materials which includes polyester, nylon, acrylic, polypropylene and elastane. Before this, clothing was made from these materials - cotton, linen and leather which came from plants and animals. However, now with companies mainly using synthetic materials, some people don’t realize that the source of these materials is fossil fuel crude oil. With everything that is happening in the environment right now, Algae is a great alternative material.

The CEO and co-found of Algaeing, Renana Krebs said “its algae formula can be used to create natural fibers and dyes using less water than conventional products, and producing zero waste and pollution.” The company’s tag line is “the future of fashion is powered by Algae.” Renana worked in the fashion industry for 15 years and witnessed the flaws of how much pollution and waste is created in the fashion industry. By starting this new venture, her startup could be a solution to stop the waste and pollution in the industry and possibly fight climate change.

Would you wear clothes made of algae?

Would you buy clothes from this brand if you knew it helped the environment?

Do you buy products that are sustainable for the environment?

Chemicals can cause plenty reactions on our skin just as much as it does inside our bodies .
I’m all for healthier non allergic clothing. We have food labels verifying nongmo and organic ingredients so why not have the same options in the clothes we wear. There are plenty people who are allergic to dyes and certain materials used to make clothes. I give this a thumbs up.

No way. That just seems gross. When I think of algae I think of the gross green slimy stuff that grows in the pool you had as a kid when it would get left dirty for a season. Even if it was dried out and pressed, I would not WEAR It! Not to be rude, but it just seems ridiculous to me! Not only is it thin, but it smells weird too. Also, wouldn't it break because of how thin it is? or would it be see through? Hello, I care about my modesty, so I wouldn't personally wear it, but go ahead and wear it if you like. I wont judge. You do you. I'll stay put in my own little world, but Eww! The idea just makes me gag. Ahaha. Also, wouldn't it irritate peoples skin? Not all, but some people might not be able to.
