WASTENDSEA sweaters made with marine waste in the Tarn!

How to reconcile trendy clothes and recycling? The answer with Wastendsea, a company based in the Tarn which offers t-shirts and sweatshirts made from plastic recovered from the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea.

Daniel Rodriguez is a textile designer. During confinement, he decided to create his own clothing brand "Wastendsea", which means "the end of waste in the sea". The idea is both simple and innovative: recover plastic from the bottom of the Mediterranean to make trendy clothes.
