Fashion and style are ever-present reminders of our values. We see, wear, feel and smell our clothes every day. Companies that turn once-polluting manufacturing processes into sustainable ones demonstrate you can take care of the planet, and your basic needs at the same time.
Climate Action Bracelet
Designed and donated pro-bono by Italian fashion icon “Cruciani”, one of Connect4Climate’s partners, this bracelet is used to encourage youth to join the climate movement and implement solutions. A bracelet is a small thing, but it can accomplish a lot. According to a recent Yale study, family and friends have the greatest ability to convince people to take climate action. Take a selfie with your recyclable Climate Action Bracelet and tweet or Instagram it with the hashtag #Connect4Climate to start the conversation with your friends. Remember to recycle the bracelets!
Luca Caprai, Founder of Cruciani, emphasizes: “Cruciani’s commitment to the environment has ancient roots and has been supporting the company's work for a long time.”
