Interview: Amé and Jakk

Make sure you can track your entire supply chain. Talk to whoever you get your materials from and be sure that they’re on the same page as you in terms of environmental sustainability.

catterpillarshirt5Can you tell us what’s special about your brand?
We take inspiration from everywhere, we’re not afraid to be weird or do something different. We love to use colour and themes that have a story to capture the imagination.

What motivated you to start an eco-friendly business/brand?
We wanted to do things properly right from the beginning, so as the company grows we wouldn’t have to make major changes to adapt to consumer demand for sustainable products.

What green issues are you most passionate about?
Recycling! All of the excess fabric we don’t use gets ground up and turned into filler for car seats. You can also return your old shirts to us for a credit on your next purchase.

What advice would you have for other aspiring social and green entrepreneurs?
Make sure you can track your entire supply chain. Talk to whoever you get your materials from and be sure that they’re on the same page as you in terms of environmental sustainability. If you’re going through all the effort to make sure your workplace is eco-friendly, make the extra effort to ensure wherever you get your raw materials or products from is doing the same.
