DO GOOD BY LOOKING GOOD
For too long the apparel industry has developed and produced garments with no concern for the environmental damage it was creating. The Recycled Planet produces men’s and women’s fashion outerwear using only recycled, repurposed, and sustainable components; delivering high quality, design driven and eco friendly clothing. You no longer have to choose between fashion and function.

Stephen D. Weisbuch
Stephen Weisbuch, one of the founders of The Recycled Planet Company, which makes men's and women's apparel from recycled and repurposed materials, has recently participated in a survey done by the University of New Hampshire in conjunction with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The issue at hand is to develop new programs related to coastal hazards and to help protect and manage the shorelines of coastal communities in the future.
Bora An started her life in a small coastal town on the southern coast of South Korea. After graduating with a marketing degree from Parsons school of design and working as a junior marketer, she fell deeply in love with designing outerwear. This Journey took her to Rome and Back to NY where she designes The Recycled Planet Outerwear.
Who Are We?
We are a group of experienced fashion industry professionals tired of seeing the unnecessary waste and environmental damage caused by conventional fashion practices . Because of this dysfunction, we have made a commitment to change how we source our materials and manufacture our product to cause the least amount of environmental damage.
What Matters To Us
Designing and manufacturing fashionable collections in an ethical, honest, and educated way constantly looking for new technologies to make the product more environmentally friendly. That means that we only source highly sustainable materials, reducing our carbon footprint for the longevity of the earth and our future generations.
What We Do
We work with our partners all over the world sourcing fabrics and components made from recycled and repurposed materials. Our goal is to continually push the envelope creating fashion apparel that is environmentally friendly. We are constantly seeking new technologies and fabrics that will allow us to reduce our carbon footprint while allowing the global community the opportunity to experience and wear the styles we create.
How Do We Do It
We employ extensive sourcing to find the most sustainable components, using them to make the most fashionable items in our collections. We are always looking for ways to make our product, its packaging and delivery the most environmentally friendly it can be.
There has always been a dichotomy of good fashion and sustainable materials. We do not deviate from our mission statement of making the planet safer by adding products just because they are trendy or current. We work our butts off to close that gap and make beautifully sustainable garments. Do good, while looking good!
